Data for Implementation (Data.FI) is a global project that helps countries strengthen routine health information systems to optimize efficiencies in the health sector, track and rapidly respond to the HIV epidemic and emerging health threats, and improve client care through integrated, and flexible digital health solutions, data analytics, and institutionalized data use practices.

To do this, we leverage expertise in program implementation, measurement, digital health, data science, and data use to help countries, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and partners ask better questions, look at unsolved problems in new ways, and pivot programming faster.

Why Us?

Data.FI provides country-tailored support across the data value chain to enhance and build integrated and client-centered health information systems that track individuals through prevention, treatment, laboratory, dispensing, and wrap-around services; strengthen governance of health information systems to improve data availability and information security; standardize routine data analytics and visualizations; and institutionalize data review.
