Description

The IDEAS project sought to improve the health and survival of mothers and babies through generating evidence to inform policy and practice. This is the documentation for a study to assess the feasibility of introducing a Data Informed Platform for Health (DIPH) – a framework to guide coordination and bring together key data from public and private health sectors on inputs and processes that could influence maternal and newborn health in Ethiopia. The DIPH was intended to promote the use of local data for decision-making and priority setting at local health administration level, and for programme appraisal and comparison at regional, zonal and woreda level. A preliminary scoping visit - a series of meetings with woreda health offices, health centres and health posts, private health facilities and NGOs - to introduce the IDEAS project and DIPH work, select those to be covered in the feasibility study, and identify key contacts – and for the feasibility study was conducted prior to the feasibility study. These resources include a scoping visit field report, and documentation for the DIPH feasibility study, including the concept note and protocol, a question list and field report.
