Strengthening Health Information Systems in Guinea Abstract:

MEASURE Evaluation, funded by the United States Agency for International Development, has been working with Guinea’s Bureau for Strategy and Development, under the Ministry of Health and Public Hygiene, to update its previously siloed and donor-driven health information collection to a more streamlined system using the electronic DHIS 2 platform. Much of this work strengthens elements of the health information system (HIS) identified in MEASURE Evaluation’s Health Information System Strengthening Model.

This brief features a graphic that displays MEASURE Evaluation activities in the model’s “enabling environment” and “information generation” domains to integrate Guinea’s health systems and improve access to high-quality health data. By displaying interventions across the model, we see their strategic interaction, and how this combination of interventions strengthens data quality and data use at all levels of the health system. A table lists additional MEASURE Evaluation activities in Guinea that support HIS strengthening. 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.
