June saw an excellent, well-attended monthly meeting on the data use partnership funded by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. The vision of this partnership is that better data and regular data use will create a data use culture, leading to better decisions, an improved health system, and improved health outcomes. During this meeting, we heard from experts at PATHCooper/Smith and Vital Wave about how governance, leadership and strategy have played an important role in elevating the use of data to improve health outcomes in Tanzania, Malawi and Ethiopia.  Click here for detailed notes from the meeting; a recording of which will be availble shortly.
