Health Informatics Governance and Data Analytics

The Health Informatics Governance and Data Analytics Project (HIGDA) is a five-year project mandated to support the health sector of the Government of Kenya (GOK) to strengthen national and county organizational and management capacity in governance, health informatics, data analytics, monitoring, evaluation, learning and accountability. 

HIGDA addresses the challenges in Kenya’s healthcare sector by building sustainable capacity of the Ministry of Health (MOH) through mentoring, supportive supervision, peer-to-peer learning, strong governance structures, and institutionalization of capacity building programs within local learning institutions. HIGDA strengthens the capacity of the Council of Governors, Division of monitoring and evaluation, health research and development and health informatics, National Programs, and 20 focus counties to inculcate a culture of routine data use at all levels.

The project also works closely with the other USAID funded projects towards scaled up and sustained investments in HIS and M&E. HIGDA’s approach is focused on ensuring continuous strengthening, monitoring, and improvements of institutional and individual capacity for HIS/M&E policy compliance.
