November 27-30, 2018
The Countdown to 2030 regional initiative for Eastern and Southern Africa, led by the African Population Health Research Center (APHRC), teamed up with WHO and UNICEF to conduct its 3rd analysis workshop in Naivasha, Kenya, November 27-30, 2018. The focus was on health facility data analysis for intervention coverage indicators and mortality/morbidity statistics for universal health coverage. Seventeen countries nominated 50 participants – senior analysts from Ministry of Health, public health institutions and Universities – and brought their own district and national data sets for in-depth analysis using new tools and approaches. The lessons learned will be reflected in a WHO set of guidance documents on analysis and use of health facility data.
Dissemination of RMNCH analysis workshop results in Uganda
After two successful analysis workshops organized in November 2017 and July 2018 that brought together government officials and academics from ESA countries, APHRC has supported the dissemination and knowledge translation of the evidence generated further to the analysis workshops. In Uganda, APHRC supported the implementation of in-country dissemination activities targeting relevant audiences, through a collaborative with the Makerere University School of Public (MakSPH).
The activities included:
- Preparation of a summary report highlighting the key Countdown findings on RMNCH coverage and child mortality inequalities in Uganda based on the three dimensions: 1) Wealth inequities at national level 2) Urban-rural inequities 3) Sub-national inequities. (Download)
