Integrating Private Sector Providers into Routine Health Information Systems to Improve Malaria Programming

The private sector plays a significant role in malaria treatment in many developing countries, with a considerable portion of the population seeking healthcare services from private providers such as pharmacies, clinics, and informal vendors. In Burkina Faso and Ghana, private sector integration into the routine health information system has greatly improved malaria data management, providing decision makers with better data to target malaria programming. On April 11, 2024, we hosted a webinar to learn about the key factors that enable comprehensive data management, the different processes undertaken, and the achievements and challenges. CHISU HIS Governance Lead Dr. Mamadou Alimou Barry moderated the discussion, which featured the following panelists:

  • Dr. Aida Mounkaila, Head of the Directorate of Statistics at the Ministry of Health Niger
  • Wahjib Mohammed, Head of Research, Surveillance, Monitoring, and Evaluation, Ghana Health Service
  • Dr. Assane Ouangare, Inspector of Health, Ministry of Health Burkina Faso
