Community Health Information: MAHEFA’s experience in building data quality at the community level


In Madagascar, data compiled at different levels of the health system is collected and analyzed at the central level and used by various stakeholders. Harmonization of reports of community-level activities and their integration into the central health information system is a recent development initiated in 2015.

The MAHEFA Program introduced integrated community health activities in six of the most remote regions in Madagascar. There were a high number of indicators necessary for tracking progress, resulting in a large quantity of data to collect and verify for community health volunteers and those they reported to.

This technical brief highlights the health information system implemented through the project. JSI / USAID | CBIHP, 2016.
