Resource Description:

This brief describes the partnership between the Government of Haryana and the HFG project to enhance the quality and use of data to improve the public health system’s practice and performance. The need is imperative for Haryana, which paradoxically continues to lag on child and maternal health indicators despite being a fast-growing, economically strong state of India. National Health Mission (NHM), Haryana, has been focusing on the adoption of innovative measures to strengthen data quality and data use for improved decision making. The development and launch of the innovative Haryana Health GIS (HHGIS) application is a strategic step in this direction.
