UNICEF, acting as the Principal Recipient of the Global Fund’s support for malaria in Somalia, has awarded a contract to MannionDaniels to support the development of the country’s unified Health Management Information system, HMIS.

Phase 1 of the assignment will last until March 2014 and result in a new database design for the HMIS, an agreed indicator list and a curriculum for health workers who are involved in data entry and use.  We will give support to the Zonal Health Authorities to use to the HMIS for better decision-making.  Ashraf Mohad will lead the work in Somalia.  Ashraf served as the Director of the Health Management Information System Unit in the Ministry of Public Health, Kabul, Afghanistan from 2005 to 2010.
