How to Help Community-Based mHealth Programs Collect High-Quality Data

As health programs are relying more on decentralized models of care, mHealth has made it easier to collect, manage and store community-level health data. This data can feed into national health information systems and be used to inform decision making for improved service delivery at the community level. But how can we ensure that our community-based mHealth programs are collecting accurate, high-quality data that will help us deliver the right services to the right places at the right time?

Girls are counting on us to count them

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) call for action against the disadvantage and discrimination borne by girls. As we work towards this goal, ensuring that quality gender data is collected, analyzed, and used for decision making continues to be a challenge. The theme for this year's International Day of the Girl (October 11) is Girls' Progress = Goals' Progress: What Counts for Girls. We cannot continue to promise a better, healthier world for girls if we cannot distinguish them in the data that drives our decision making.

Understanding and using tuberculosis data

Is the resource available on the Internet?
Yes
Author
WHO, Global Task Force on TB Impact Measurement

Background

Country health information systems provide a rich source of data on the burden of disease caused by tuberculosis (TB) and the effectiveness of programmatic efforts to reduce this burden, both of which are crucial for public health action. However, the available data are often underused, or not used at all. At least in part, this may reflect the absence of clear guidance on recommended approaches to the analysis of such data.
