Launching the Performance Routine Information System Management Assessment in Yemen

August 5th, 2021 | News


The health information system in Yemen is highly fragmented, hindering the ability of the Ministry of Public Health and Population (MoPHP) to access reliable and timely routine information for decision-making. The challenge is also that data collection is paper-based, entered manually into an Excel spreadsheet, and then transferred into the Yemen HMIS. This undermines the effective management of health services and the public health system.

To address these challenges, our USAID-funded Systems, Health and Resiliency Project (SHARP), in partnership with MoPHP, recently launched the Performance Routine Information System Management (PRISM) assessment.  This multi-dimensional tool will assess the current routine health information system (RHIS) and identify its gaps. The results of the assessment will enable the MoPHP and SHARP/JSI teams to develop a strategic action plan to strengthen and pilot an integrated RHIS for evidence-based decision making at the central, governorate, district and health facility levels.
