Assessment of Data Use Constraints

Author:MEASURE Evaluation
Description:This assessment is one component of a toolkit to improve data demand and use in the health sector. The assessment of data use constraints is a rapid assessment tool that serves three key purposes: it identifies existing barriers and constraints to data use; it identifies existing best practices in data use; and it helps in designing and prioritizing approaches for addressing barriers and constraints. The assessment is intended to be a rapid assessment and is not representative of all barriers that may exist in the country, region, district, or organization being assessed. This tool can be used in a stand-alone assessment or as a component of a larger assessment-or parts of it can be extracted to serve specific purposes, such as for use in a workshop with M&E staff.
