SUMMARY

By scaling the electronic Community Health Information System (eCHIS) to 8,000 additional health extension workers (HEWs) in Ethiopia, JSI will leverage the power of digitally enabled performance management to improve the coverage and quality of primary health care services. The investment will help transform the health extension program in Ethiopia through improved use of data for robust performance management of HEWs, leading to improved health outcomes for mothers, children and adolescents.

The Ethipia eCHIS project seeks to accomplish the following goals:

  1. Scale-up eCHIS to improve quality care, referral linkages, and access to data for decision making:

    • Mapping and site selection;

    • Deployment of eCHIS to 8,000 HEWs through a cascade training approach;

    • Ensure ongoing system usage through mentorship and supportive supervision.

  2. Unleash the power of eCHIS to transform community-level health data for HEW performance management and targeting of primary health services:

    • Strengthen data use processes at district levels and above;

    • Design, test and validate new performance management models.

  3. Establish learning sites to incubate new innovations on the eCHIS platform that can be scaled nationally for an optimized health extension program.

This project is supported by the Children's Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF).
