MCHIP, with support from the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI), conducted a review of national health management information systems in a sample of six PMI focus countries: Kenya, Mozambique, Malawi, Mali, Tanzania and Uganda. The aim was to improve the understanding of how ministries of health are monitoring and reporting on their malaria in pregnancy-related program results and how the data are being used.
This report presents findings from the review specific to Malawi, recommendations on priority indicators that should be monitored at the facility level, data collection formats, as well as ways to interpret and use data to improve services and ways to report data up through the health system.
The other five country reports – as well as a synthesis report – are also available:
