HHFA data review, interpretation, and communication

The Harmonized Health Facility Assessment (HHFA) is a comprehensive health facility survey assessing the availability of health facility services and the capacities of facilities to deliver quality services. This course prepares health professionals at country level to review and interpret the HHFA data, in order to identify the gaps or weaknesses in health facility services, monitor progress in service delivery systems, and make recommendations to policy-makers for strengthening health systems.

Overview

The HHFA generates a wealth of information that can inform policy-making, planning and management of health services. Its findings are complex; they need to be understood, summarized, translated into clear key messages, and communicated to decision-makers. Data interpretation and communication are crucial, but often neglected components of the survey process. This course aims to address these gaps.

The course targets ministry of health (MoH) planners and managers, as well as partners. It aims to enable them to describe, understand, and extract meaning from the information collected and, combined with other data sources and contextual knowledge, to communicate the key messages in effective ways to decision-makers and managers of the MoH and its partners.

The HHFA Comprehensive guide is the key reference document for this course.
