UNFPA Donates HMIS Tools To Karamoja For Maternal Health Improvement

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) donated 7,890 integrated Health Management Information Systems tools to Karamoja.

They were specifically donated to Abim district to improve maternal health and to fuel Covid-19 response efforts.

The officer in charge of UNFPA’s Moroto Decentralized office, Ms. Patricia Nangiro handed over the donations.

These were maternal health registers and publications, printed with funding from the Austrian Development Agency.

She handed them to Dr. Salome Tino, Abim District Health Officer (DHO).

The tools included maternal, antenatal, and postnatal registers, postpartum care forms, mother-child passports, and maternal admission charts. More still, there were reproductive health commodity order forms, family planning atlas, Sexual Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) registers, and Covid-19 awareness posters.

‘’These tools are basically to help improve the quality of data that is gathered from the health facilities regarding sexual reproductive health and also to improve on the service delivery,’’ said MS. Nangiro.

She added that it is important that UNFPA supports the districts with these tools. They will distribute them to all health center III’s. She also included health center IVs as well as hospitals.

The purpose of the HMIS tools is to address health delivery problems and strengthening health interventions. They will also hand them to other districts in the Karamoja region later.

They expect health facilities in Uganda to fill and submit weekly, monthly, quarterly, and annual reports.

These reports are about health care service delivery. They will therefore submit them to the Ministry of Health and department partners.
