KABUL, AFGHANISTAN – Using support from USAID, Afghanistan’s Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) today launched the country’s Data Warehouse, a web-based system for storing and sharing public sector health data with stakeholders and policy-makers.

The main objective of the Data Warehouse is to improve organizational access to and use of data for effective planning, decision-making and tracking of health programs. Before this initiative, public health sector data was unintegrated, off-line and not easily accessible to stakeholders to use for health programs planning and assessing status of services. Using the District Health Information Software, managers, policy makers, stakeholders and the public will have easy access to this important health data.
