A well-functioning health information system (HIS) requires the presence of a governance framework, structures, policies, protocols, and standards, and national and regional strategic plans. DUP provides support across these components at national and regional levels, and maintains the substantial gains achieved while addressing the remaining gaps.
Our work in this area includes:
- Preparation of national and regional HIS governance frameworks
- Establishing HIS governance structures, such as the National HIS Steering Committee, the National HIS Advisory Group (NAG), and Data Use, Digitization, and HIS governance technical working groups.
- Producing critical governance documents, such as the HIS Strategic Plan, Digital Health Blueprint, and Data Access and Sharing Guidelines.
