What does HMN do?
HMN is carrying out work in two technical work streams, called Priority Strategic Initiatives:
MOVE-IT for the MDGs
Monitoring Of Vital Events, including through innovative approaches, such as information and communication technology, consists of helping countries strengthen their health information systems to help track progress towards the Millennium Development Goals. It is a renewed drive to record every birth, death, and cause of death, reversing the global and national neglect of this issue.
Progress Tracking Tool/State of the World's Information Systems for Health
A Progress Tracking Tool is under development to help countries measure health information system improvements. The State of the World Information Systems for Health (SWISH) report will document the current state of health information systems in countries and identify priority areas for strengthening.
