Title: Annual Public Health Statistics Report (2007)
Date of publication: August 2009
Description/subject: Preface: "This mutually contributed report, the Annual Public Health Statistics Report 2007, is published by Department of Health Planning (DHP) in collaboration with Department of Health (DOH), Ministry of Health. It covers not only all-inclusive statistics of the process of the health care delivery system but also reveals the outcomes of public health activities executed within one year period of 2007 start of January to end of December. The entire public health statistics is as of Health Management Information System (HMIS) which ideally sustaining management cultures that both recognize and use quantitative methods in support of decision making processes with essential minimum data sets. HMIS in Myanmar is jointly run by DHP and DOH representing fundamental health projects under the National Health Plan. To coordinate activities between health services to help effective referral patterns and avoid unnecessary duplication of costly services, setting up priorities for the allocation of health care resources, the health information is very crucial. As the demand of more reliable and timely health information is evident HMIS endeavors to convince enhanced facets of data collection, compilation, processing, analysis and publication. This very fundamental job is commenced by the Basic Health Staffs from the Rural and Sub-Rural Health Centers at the primary health care units. The monthly reports from them and also from staffs at the township health departments are compiled and cleaned under the supervision of township medical officers, the most responsible persons at the township level. In hierarchal order, health personnel from Districts, States/Divisions Health Departments and Information Division from DHP carve up the responsibility of compiling, processing, analyzing and publishing of data. The Department of Health Planning has developed and distributed Data Dictionary for the Health Indicators and conducted training of trainers, multiplier and strengthening trainings to facilitate advancement of the quality of Public Health Statistics. DHP feeds quarterly reports to respective project managers and allow for the feedbacks in return. It is also unworkable to accomplish this essential task without the support of departments from Ministries, UN Agencies, National and International NGOs and Private Organizations. To conclude, we would like to convey our heartfelt gratitude to each and every one contributed to HMIS and realization of this imperative report. For the improvement of the report in the future, we truly appreciate and welcome any constructive comments and suggestions..."
