Data Collection and Analysis to Boost Health Service in PNG

In any public service in the country collection and compilation of data to improve services remains a challenge. A group of 20 health workers all over the country have just completed a training funded by the USAID and facilitated FHi360 aimed at utilising the data collected in their health centres.

This Training is to build the capacity of health workers to be able to analyse the data they collect instead of sending raw data to the National Department of Health monthly.

According to the FHi360 country Director Mr David Tesfaye, this is to ensure that health workers pass on vital information as observed in clinical work in relation to the data collected for better policy implication.
The participants are from all over the country and they will take back with them the training on HIV Surveillance and how to use it to combat the deadly epidemic.
