USAID Missions, governments, and ministries of health need frequent access to data to monitor interventions and measure progress against targets. This allows health programs to rapidly course-correct if underperforming, and to better serve the populations most affected by HIV and COVID-19. Data.FI develops and employs evidence-based approaches to ensuring that data are used to inform meaningful change and save lives.

These selected publications share our experience strengthening host-country government capacity to develop and maintain sustainable information systems, helping to ensure that data are used to inform meaningful change and save lives.
