Over the past few years, health information systems have become a key component for the Haiti Ministry of Health, Ministère de la Sante Publique et de la Population (MSPP). We know that good data is an essential prerequisite for making informed public health decisions. However, continuous improvements in data collection, aggregation, analysis, and dissemination, even when made throughout a health information system, does not guarantee better public health decision-making. This session will examine challenges and successes, and share lessons learned on how the MSPP has been able to use improvements to Le Système d’Information Sanitaire Nationale Unique (SISNU) data analytics to inform specific MSPP decisions at the clinical, departmental, and national levels institutionalizing the data demand and information use (DDIU) processes to ensure those decisions are informed by evidence.

While donors have long supported the use of DHIS2 for projects and implementing partners, more and more donors have adopted DHIS2 as an internal reporting system. In this panel, we’ll bring a group of donor representatives together to discuss how DHIS2 adoption has supported their internal data management needs. We’ll also touch on how this adoption has helped to better align with Government and implementing partners.
