Hosted by USAID’s Maternal and Child Survival Program
Tuesday, March 26, 2019
In order to reach the Sustainable Development Goals, countries are focusing on improving the coverage, quality and equity of high-impact reproductive, maternal, newborn, child and adolescent (RMNCAH) interventions. Improvements in RMNCAH outcomes cannot be achieved without robust methods to track progress and the availability of timely and high quality data to allow health workers and managers to make good decisions. For health workers and managers to be able to use the right data at the right time and place, countries must identify and define key RMNCAH indicators and include them in national health management information systems (HMIS); national health information systems (HIS) must be strong enough to collect high quality data; and tools and processes must exist for health workers and managers with the right competencies to analyze, visualize and ultimately use data to make good decisions.
Join USAID’s flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program for a webinar on March 26 to reflect on MCSP’s and other partners’ experiences in promoting better measurement and data use at the global and country levels over the last five years. We will consider progress to date, key learning and priority directions to improve routine RMNCAH data for action and accountability at the global and country levels.
The webinar link will be made available to registered participants.
