CHISU supports Côte d’Ivoire’s Directorate of Coordination of the Expanded Immunization Program (DCPEV) to:
- Improve performance of existing program-specific and parallel data systems
- Enable interoperability between these systems and the health management information system (HMIS)
- Use data to effectively understand the performance of the immunization program, manage strategic allocation of resources, and improve data quality and management
- Train and mentor DCPEV managers and data analysts at central and decentralized levels
Supporting COVID-19 data management and use
CHISU is supporting the coordination of HIS stakeholders by supporting an existing technical working group, assisting with efforts to integrate the existing COVID-19 vaccination information systems into routine HIS, mapping all COVID-19 and HIS digital applications, and developing key governance documents (such as a National Enterprise Architecture). CHISU is also focusing on integrating the DCPEV information systems and improving overall COVID-19 data analysis and use—which will allow for timely and effective decision making for vaccine delivery.
Strengthening malaria data quality and use
CHISU will build on previous achievements around strengthening malaria surveillance, monitoring, and evaluation (SME) and address the remaining challenges. The activities will focus on: 1) strengthening HIS governance at the central and decentralized levels; 2) continuing interventions to improve the quality of data produced by assisting the decentralized level to systematically use the data quality control tools available in DHIS2; 3) the use of information at the decentralized level; 4) improving the development and use of tools to monitor progress of the health information system; 5) strengthening actors’ capacity for analysis and use of the information.
Supporting construction of a One Health digital platform for the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA)
CHISU will also support Côte d’Ivoire to establish their One Health multisectoral digital platform to better prepare, prevent, and plan their response to potential epidemics. During the year, CHISU will support: 1) the coordination of the One Health platform; 2) the creation and use of a digital platform, focusing on improving the availability of quality data that will inform decision making and help the country’s ministry of health build interoperability between all health system software. In addition, CHISU will support the improvement of the existing website (PLUSS).
Digital Health Week 2023 is an opportunity for the digital health community to share their successes, challenges, and perspectives on the role of digital health in achieving Universal Health Coverage (UHC). Several of the week’s themes resonate with CHISU’s work, but the theme of governance stands out. We asked CHISU team members: Why do you think governance is important when it comes to health data and digital health tools? And how does governance play a role in the work you do for CHISU?
