Data Demand and Information Use in the Health Sector Strategies and Tools

Author:MEASURE Evaluation
Description:This collection of data demand and use (DDU) strategies and tools is meant to be implemented in four distinct steps. This toolkit includes two key instruments for assessment. The first is a rapid appraisal to help stakeholders, policy makers, and M&E practitioners to intensify DDU needs and determine entry points for intervention (meant to be step 1 for facilitating DDU). The second tool in the assessment of data use constraints, which can be used during step 3 to gather information on data flow and data use from key stakeholders. The tools should be implemented as part of a concerted intervention to target DDU (as described in the guidance).
