Documenting Health Data Quality Practices within USAID Supported Implementing Partners and Health Facilities Receiving MEASURE Evaluation–Tanzania’s Technical AssistanceSince 2008, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has tasked MEASURE Evaluation–Tanzania (MEval-TZ)—an associate award of the leader project MEASURE Evaluation, based at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, NC, USA—with conducting annual data quality assessments (DQAs) within selected HIV testing, care, and treatment programs. MEval-TZ conducted the study reported here to learn how the activities we implemented have changed health information systems (HIS). The aim of this study was to document drivers of and barriers to the effectiveness of DQA activities to strengthen data quality. The study also sought to help us understand of the contribution of the DQAs to the strengthening of HIS in the target regions/districts. As part of its learning agenda, MEval-TZ needed to identify data and metrics that could be used to assess the effects of the monitoring and evaluation (M&E) system strengthening activities conducted by the project, primarily at the subnational level. Furthermore, the study aimed to identify recommendations for improvement of data quality in Tanzania and globally. This report shares more.
