Decreasing the Data Burden at the Last Mile to Improve Data Management and Use for Stronger Pharmaceutical Systems

August 24, 2015

Governments and their partners are acutely aware of the need for innovative ways to reduce the data burden on health workers. With support from the US Agency for International Development-funded Systems for Improved Access to Pharmaceuticals and Services (SIAPS) Program, VillageReach conducted a review of data management and use practices, particularly with respect to pharmaceuticals, in Malawi and Swaziland to better define and quantify the data burden facing health workers. This brief provides both context for and an articulation of the data burden seen within health systems in LMICs. It also provides recommendations for ways that ministries of health, donors, and implementing partners can rethink their approach to data management to improve health service delivery.
