As part of it its efforts to improve the quality of maternal, newborn, and child health (MNCH) care in low-income countries, MCHIP has taken specific steps to improve the monitoring of MNCH services through strengthening routine HMIS. These efforts have led to better monitoring and evaluation, higher-quality data, and informed decision-making in 28 countries across MNCH interventions. Ongoing efforts to improve HMIS will increase country and global access to information-rich systems to support MNCH program strengthening. This report summarizes successful HMIS-related interventions and innovations in countries where MCHIP is operating and at the global level. It highlights what MCHIP has done to strengthen HMIS and which MCHIP contributions have been integrated and institutionalized in national HMIS systems, and describes lessons learned.
