Niger has made great strides in developing its national health information system. Following the adoption and national rollout of DHIS2 in 2017, the country is focused on improving the use of data at all levels and increasing data exchange between systems.
CHISU’s work in Niger involves:
- Strengthening the governance and enabling environment for eHealth (for example, enhancing the communities of practice governing DHIS2 and the national HIS governance bodies).
- Increasing the availability and interoperability of quality health data information systems (for example, by improving interoperability among data sources and strengthening the reporting of private sector data into the national DHIS2).
- Improving data analysis and use (for example, supporting the Ministry of Health to routinely monitor and use community and health facility data to inform health policies and decision-making).
