Abstract: How can WHO get an in-depth knowledge of users' needs in health information, especially in Member States? What are the keys to more efficient national health information systems (NHIS)? Such challenges were discussed as part of a project on the assessment of national health information systems (NHIS), launched by the Health Information unit. Systematic reviews of NHIS should be conducted at regular intervals to respond to the rapidly-evolving needs of contemporary public health. This toolkit was prepared and pilot-tested in 2003-04 in five pilot countries, and has been made available to all Member States of the European Region as a support to assess and strengthen NHIS. The guiding principles of the project are: exchange of experiences; capacity building in countries; empowerment of health professionals; flexibility of methodology; sustainability of the project in countries ; increased quality and appropriateness of data and information
