A two day training workshop on Data Quality Assessment was organized at Prime Institute of Public Health (PIPH) for Data Managers of FATA Health Directorate. The activity was made possible with support of GiZ FATA Development Programme (FDP).

A health information system has been put in place by government in FATA since 2012, which has been functional in many locations despite the challenging security situation in several agencies. The system however needs attention in terms of the quality of data being produced by it.

This workshop was designed to train FATA staff in using a software tool developed for quality assessment of District Health Information System (DHIS) in FATA. The software is based on internationally used method of data quality assessment (RDQA), and is part of a larger project involving development of quality standards for DHIS, for the first time in Pakistan. More than 20 staff of FATA Health Directorate concerned with information management, attended the workshop.

In his opening presentation Dr. Zeeshan (Director Postgraduate Programs, PIPH) briefed the participants on the background and purpose of DHIS quality assessment exercise. He shared with the participants details of a quality assurance plan for DHIS FATA. According to Dr. Zeeshan “Quality improvement of health information system involves addressing issues related to structure, processes and outputs of the system.”

Dr. Usman (Director Public Health Interventions, PIPH) introduced the participants to the DHIS Quality Assessment tool and explained its various components in detail. This was followed by hands on sessions during which participants practiced Quality Assessment for Health Facilities, Agency Offices and Directorate level. The second day of the workshop was dedicated to training the participants on how to interpret the results of assessment, and how to develop action plans for improvement of DHIS.

FATA DHIS Coordinator, Mr. Muhammad Niaz also addressed the participants during the workshop, and emphasized the importance of addressing quality issues in DHIS. At the end of the two day workshop Dr. Saeed Anwar (Project Director, PIPH) did a review of the training and urged the participants on implementing the quality assessment methodology in letter and spirit.
