Defining and Building a Data Use Culture

, , , ,
Global

Over the past decade, the use of information and communication technology (ICT) to improve health outcomes has multiplied in the global health sector. More recently, there has been an increasing emphasis on maturing away from a myriad of pilots and toward proven and scaled solutions. Now, ICTs are widely recognized as an essential and valuable tool for increasing access to and the quality of information and services.

BID Initiative Briefs: Recommendations and Lessons Learned | Introduction

, , ,

Routine immunizations and new vaccine introductions are two best buys in global health. While immunization coverage has increased dramatically in the last decade, more must be done to ensure every child is reached. To bridge this gap, we need reliable, easily accessed and actionable data on the barriers impeding immunizations, coupled with trained data users at all levels of the health system. The BID Initiative is grounded in the belief that better data, plus better decisions will lead to better health outcomes. Partnering with Tanzania and Zambia, the BID Initiative developed, tested, and rolled out interventions that address some of the most pressing routine immunization service delivery challenges, such as poor visibility into vaccine supplies and difficulty identifying children who default on immunization schedules. These seven briefs summarize the BID Initiative’s approaches and interventions, and shares recommendations and lessons learned for others interested in improving immunization data quality and use.
