Abstract for Research Paper Healthcare technologies


Kenya’s health information system (HIS) for family planning (FP) is fragmented, preventing integration of data from multiple sources in meaningful information products. Although FP is the second most-funded health program in Kenya in terms of money spent on commodities FP funding is not equitably distributed to other components of the health system, including DHIS 2, this study investigated integration of FP data in DHIS 2, factors related to lack of integration, and ways to remedy the lack of integration. Design was cross-sectional and employed a knowledge, attitudes, and practices survey to adequately understand DHIS 2. Data collection techniques included document reviews, FGDs, KIIs, and field visits. Results point to poor integration of FP data in DHIS 2; the quality of data in DHIS 2 not accurately reflecting what is in the MOH 711 .Recommendations included giving reproductive health coordinators and facility in-charges user rights to DHIS 2
