Strengthening Health Information Systems in Burundi Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation, funded by the United States Agency for International Development, has been working with the Ministry of Health to strengthen Burundi’s monitoring and evaluation system through integration of multiple siloed data collection systems for routine data, HIV/AIDS data, and community-based data. Much of this work to integrate systems requires strengthening elements of the health information system (HIS) identified in MEASURE Evaluation’s Health Information System Strengthening Model (HISSM).

This brief features a graphic that depicts MEASURE Evaluation activities in the HISSM’s “enabling environment” and “information generation” domains to improve the integration of Burundi’s health systems and access to high-quality data. By displaying interventions across the model, we see their strategic interaction, and how this combination of interventions strengthens data quality and use at all levels of the health system. A table lists additional MEASURE Evaluation activities that support HIS strengthening in Burundi, by the year in which they began. because of these interventions, we expect improvements in the quality of the data collected and an increase in the use of HIS data to generate health indicators and statistics and to inform decision making.
