The Ethiopia Data Use Partnership (DUP) is a collaborative platform for the Ethiopian Ministry of Health (MOH), regional health bureaus (RHBs), local universities and a consortium led by JSI that supports national efforts to advance the country’s healthcare. Funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, the DUP aims to improve the collection and use of high-quality routine information in Ethiopia’s health sector, leading to better quality, efficiency, and availability of primary health and nutrition services at all levels of the health system.

The DUP is grounded in a participatory, user-centered approach and follows four guiding principles:

  • Country ownership & accountability with DUP supporting the MOH’s efforts and vision
  • Inclusive & active collaboration with a range of cross-sector stakeholders
  • Investment in a pervasive information culture that promotes active data use at each layer of the health system
  • Innovation & strategic change, stemming from human-centered design and systems thinking that builds on current investments and encourages learning from local and global experiences
