We have organized valuable HIS strengthening resources by the areas of the HIS Strengthening Model

HIS Resource Center T‪ier 2 pages26.jpg

Health information system (HIS) practitioners and researchers working to build strong HIS don’t need to start from scratch. Examples of important HIS documents can be accessed through the HIS country profiles. The HIS Strengthening Model provides the foundation for HIS planning and learning. HIS assessment tools can be searched and accessed in the HIS assessment tools database. HIS performance indicators can be found in the Resource Center’s indicator registry.
