Leveraging digital health to end HIV. National health information systems (HIS) are a primary component of country health systems managed by Ministries of Health (MOHs). HIS will be one of the most critical resources in coming years – leveraging data to drive quality patient care and improve program efficiency will be key to reaching and sustaining HIV epidemic control.

EGPAF approach. EGPAF proudly partners with MOHs across Africa to design, develop, deploy, and maintain national health information ecosystems, with an emphasis on our priority to achieve strategic data use. EGPAF’s approach blends our technical expertise in the delivery of health services with our capabilities in digital health, to ensure that tools and approaches serve to strengthen national data systems for the improvement of patient health services. EGPAF has partnered with MOHs across sub-Saharan Africa for more than two decades to establish and optimize HIS, beginning with paper systems, and now focusing on electronic systems – to guide precision patient care and to enhance program performance.
