dc.description.abstractHow 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 informationen
