FUNDER/S: National Department of Health

AREA: National
DESCRIPTION: One of the key performance areas of the National Department of Health is to publish a regular report contain key health indicators. HST, together with key external contributors, has been commissioned by NDoH to produce an Annual National Health Statistics Publication, which will serve as authoritative national health statistics, in hard and electronic formats. The statistics contained in the publication will be disaggregated into national, provincial, district, and sub-district levels, and will comprehensively reflect service delivery. This requires in-depth mining of the available health statistics, as well as packaging and presenting them in an informative and accessible manner.
OBJECTIVES:
  1. Collect, validate, analyse and present an agreed list of health indicators in a publication.
  2. Develop a database, data collection tools and build capacity within NDoH to maintain such an output.
