As 2016 comes to a close, we look back at the great progress we made this year towards providing countries with an adaptable package of solutions to improve data quality, collection, and use. Thank you for following along on our journey and we look forward to an exciting and fruitful 2017.

Nurse Oliver Mlemeta and her colleagues play a critical role in the success of BID Initiative solutions. Our team works closely with health workers at each facility in our test region and province to ensure health workers understand the suite of interventions and how each component works together to ultimately improve health worker efficiency and health service delivery.
