West Bank and Gaza Strip: newest user of HMN Framework
4 October 2010
The West Bank and Gaza Strip have begun using the HMN Framework and are its newest user. The media This Week in Palestine reports that there has been a major focus on improving the health information system which has been "incomplete, fragmented, unreliable, and outdated." It says that in September 2010 a workshop was held to conduct a comprehensive assessment of the current health information system using the Health Metrics Network assessment tool. This will allow identification and implementation of the necessary improvements, and results will feed into a health information strategy covering the territory.
