Reporting backGroup 3:


Issues raised by ministers

  • Vital statistics and surveillance are critical to planning

  • Expected benefit from electronic medical records and other technology for scattered islands

  • Need to strengthen human capacity to collect, analyze, and use health information

  • Role of Information and communication technology

  • Different capacities and organizational structures

  • Harmonization between sectors


Consequences of not addressing this concern?

Lack of accurate and timely information limits:

  • Making evidence-based policy decisions

  • Focusing on the right priorities

  • Efficient allocation of resources

  • Monitoring progress

  • Detection and response to health emergencies


Regional actions

  • Build effective training programs for all levels

    • Data management, surveillance, epidemiology

  • Harmonize, develop standards

  • Learn from successes and failures

  • Strengthen regional surveillance & response

    • APSED/IHR

    • STEPS surveys

    • Civil registration


What is best done at national level

  • Strengthen human resource capacity, including developing core data competencies at all levels

  • Advocate for improved civil & vital registration systems

  • Select appropriate solutions based on information needs and country capacity

  • Improve quality & use of existing data

  • Strengthen surveillance & response

  • Ensure privacy and confidentiality


What should development partners do?

  • Utilize and strengthen existing health information (also donor harmonisation)

  • Empower countries to better use their own data

  • Build effective data management and field epidemiology training programs

  • Improve communications between countries (IHR, health statistics)


Better utilize existing data and resources

  • In-country statistics offices and surveillance systems

  • Regional networks (e.g. PPHSN, PHIN, PIHOA)

  • Regional surveillance systems (e.g. Syndromic Surveillance, Laboratory networks)


Recommended Actions for Ministers

Create a culture of information:

  • Demand better quality information and evidence for policy decisions

  • Advocate for improved civil and vital registration systems

  • Select the most appropriate solution to get the required information

  • Support strengthening of human resources
