MCSP Health Management Information Systems Webinar Series

Posted August 23, 2018

Routine Health Management Information Systems (HMIS) are the backbone of monitoring service delivery programs at the national level in low- and middle-income countries. Several global initiatives have issued recommendations for core maternal and newborn health indicators, including some that should be tracked at the global and national levels via routine HMIS. However, it is not well understood which countries are already collecting this information and which ones would need to revise their HMIS to track these indicators.

Join MCSP and USAID for a three-part webinar series to share findings from a review from 24 countries on what HMIS information is available regarding maternal and newborn care, family planning, and child health and nutrition service delivery.

Webinar 1: September 5th, 9:00-10:30 am
What Data Do National Health Management Information Systems Include?  A Review of HMIS Systems for Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health and Nutrition and Family Planning

The first webinar in the series focused on global findings, and included opportunities for audience questions and feedback. The presentation can be downloaded here.

Webinar 2: September 26th, 9:00 am
Maternal and Newborn Health and Family Planning

We’ll present key findings on the maternal and newborn health and family planning content of national HMIS across 24 low- and middle-income countries. (Registration and viewing info are forthcoming.)

Webinar 3: October 3rd, 9:00 am
Child Health and Nutrition

Our final event will feature results from an examination of child health and nutrition data elements in 23 countries’ national HMIS at both the primary health center and community levels. (Registration and viewing info are forthcoming.)
