Global report on health data systems and capacity, 2020
Data and information that help governments prioritize health challenges and allocate necessary resources rely on strong country health information systems. These systems identify health care availability as well as access and quality of care issues that prevent the attainment of universal health coverage (UHC). The same country health information systems also provide important data for global monitoring for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and other
donor reporting. The results of the global assessment are published in this SCORE Global report on health data systems and capacity, 2020. Accompanying the global report is the SCORE Assessment methodology which provides details of the indicators and methodologies applied in the assessment and subsequent analyses. To meet the increasingly complex demands on countries for health information, the new SCORE for Health Data Technical Package brings together, for the first time, a set of the most effective interventions and tools for addressing critical data gaps and strengthening country health data for planning and monitoring health priorities.
