Quarterly Malaria Review Meeting Triggers Data Reporting Improvements: Friendly Competition Yields Better Information

File Type .pdf | File Size 550.7 KB

Without regular, good quality health information, a health system cannot adequately do its job: deliver information and services needed to combat priority health issues. Accurate, routine data contributes to good decision making and more precise programming. Recognizing that health information was a low priority in some districts, the Promoting Malaria Prevention and Treatment (ProMPT) project assisted the Ghana Health Service to organize quarterly review meetings that provided a forum for Health Information Officers to receive feedback on their malaria data performance and exchange ideas and experiences on data collection. This success story describes how these meetings contributed to improved data reporting and quality. ProMPT is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) through the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI).
