Webinar - Integrating Gender in Health Information System Strengthening: Experiences from Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Indonesia

Gender considerations and sensitivities are unquestionably an important lens to view strengthening health information systems (HIS) and digital transformation. If gender integration is associated with merely collecting and reporting male vs. female health care recipients, who and what other factors are we overlooking? The answer might be much more than we expect, and the consequences are far reaching.

CHISU has been working with the Governments of Burkina Faso, Ghana, and Indonesia to intentionally and systematically integrate gender considerations in HIS strengthening interventions. This webinar discussed their experiences.
