Podcast 3: District decision making for health in low income settings

Information systems and health planning are relatively neglected areas of health policy and system research.

Collecting high quality routine information and using this information to plan and evaluate health services is critical for health system strengthening.

To optimise the use of public resources in mixed health systems, it is vital to understand the activities of all the actors that are involved in producing health, bringing a vision of health that is aligned with a social determinants perspective and with multi-sectoral targets such as the sustainable development goals.

This podcast outlines a series of articles in Health Policy and Planning on a new model for a 'Data-Informed Platform for Health' which would bring together routine information from the public and private sectors on health care inputs and processes including service delivery, that could inform decision making, priority setting and planning at the district level, and assist in the evaluation of maternal, newborn and child health (MNCH) services.
