Through this project entitled, Country Health Information Systems and Data Use (CHISU), USAID seeks to award a cooperative agreement to strengthen health information systems in low and middle income countries (LMIC) supported by USAID health programming.
The overall goal of CHISU is to strengthen
country capacity and leadership to manage and use health information systems to improve evidence-based decisions.
The project will focus on enhancing host-country capacity to produce high-quality health information, to optimally manage this information and to institutionalize evidence-based decision making.
It will align activities, priorities and systems with host-country strategic health objectives and contribute to a country’s own development journey.
This project will build upon USAID’s Global Health Bureau’s (GH) long-history promoting the use of data for decision making and enhancing health information systems in collaboration with host country counterparts.
