Resource Description: 

The Government of India’s Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) places rigorous emphasis on evidence-based planning, monitoring, and supervision of public health services. Generation and use of reliable, quality health data is crucial for improving the quality of health services, especially to achieve the maternal and child health goals aimed for under the strategic reproductive, maternal, newborn, child, and adolescent health (RMNCH+A) initiative. The Health Management Information System (HMIS), envisioned as the “single window” for all public health data in the country, is thus a critical resource for the government. The MoHFW was supported by the USAID-funded Health Finance and Governance (HFG) project for third party assessment (TPA) of HMIS data quality to strengthen HMIS performance.
