This book is designed to be a quick-and-easy and user-friendly reference for HMIS development with focus on application. It provides a general overview of the principle steps and issues involved in the development of health management information systems. The simple and direct approach together with worksheets enable staff to follow the steps systematically. This guide will be of interest to information staff and health managers at national provincial and even district levels who are actively involved in the development of HMIS and decision-makers who do not have in-depth background on HMIS but need to have a general overview of HIS components so that they can oversee its development over time.
