On Wednesday, September 5, USAID and its flagship Maternal and Child Survival Program (MCSP) will kick off a three-part webinar series to share findings from a review from 24 countries on what HMIS information is available regarding maternal and newborn care, family planning, and child health and nutrition service delivery. This webinar, the first in the series, will focus on global findings. It will include opportunities for audience questions and feedback.
What Data Do National Health Management Information Systems Include? A Review of HMIS Systems for Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Nutrition and Family Planning
Wednesday, September 5, 2018 at 9:00-10:30 a.m. EDT
Routine Health Management Information Systems (HMIS) are the backbone of monitoring service delivery programs at the national level in low- and middle-income countries. Several global initiatives have issued recommendations for core maternal and newborn health indicators, including some that should be tracked at the global and national levels via routine HMIS. However, it is not well understood which countries are already collecting this information and which ones would need to revise their HMIS to track these indicators.
