Health Information

A well-functioning health information system ensures the production, analysis, dissemination and use of reliable and timely information on health determinants, health systems performance and health status.

A health information system supplies the basis for decision-making. Better access to timely, complete and accurate evidence on health systems leads to better policy work and more effective health interventions.

The WHO advocates for and supports the countries to treat health information as a national asset, use evidence to drive decisions and strengthen research capacity.
