Гранты на укрепление потенциала и лидерства в управлении и использовании информационных систем

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) is seeking applications for a cooperative agreement from qualified entities to implement the Country Health Information Systems and Data Use (CHISU) program.

The overall goal of CHISU is to strengthen country capacity and leadership to manage and use health information systems to improve evidence-based decisions.

The project will focus on enhancing host-country capacity to produce high-quality health information, to optimally manage this information and to institutionalize evidence-based decision making. It will align activities, priorities and systems with host-country strategic health objectives and contribute to a country’s own development journey. This project will build upon USAID’s Global Health Bureau’s (GH) long-history promoting the use of data for decision making and enhancing health information systems in collaboration with host country counterparts.

Objectives

        Strengthened governance and enabling environment of the host-country health information systems;

        Increased availability and interoperability of quality health data and information systems;

        Increased demand and use of health data and information to address health priorities, gaps and challenges; and,

        Strengthened organizational development of local, non-governmental partners for sustained local engagement on health data use.

Geographic Coverage

USAID envisions a majority of the project work will take place in the Africaregion, followed by Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, the Middle East and Europe and Eurasia; however this will be dependant on USAID Mission funding (buy-in) and is subject to change.
