Strengthening Strategic Information Activities in the Kingdom of Lesotho

Project Details

ICAP is providing technical assistance to develop a web-based health management information system (HMIS) with IT and infrastructure support to roll out the system nationwide. This system will support facility- and district-level data entry, management, and use to strengthen evidence-based planning and monitoring of health programs and policies. The project is also supporting the Lesotho Ministry of Health in other domains of strategic information, including planning and coordination, implementation of HIV surveillance, and maintenance of an up-to-date master facility list with precise unique facility identifiers and GPS coordinates. Activities aim to transform the fragmented paper-based HMIS into a robust, streamlined electronic system and to build capacity at the national level to maintain and improve the system.

The initiative is funded by the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
