The DHMIS policy focuses on seven (7) high level priority areas, namely: Health Information Coordination and Leadership; Indicators; Data management, Data security; Data analysis and information products; Data dissemination and use and Health information system resources. These priority areas have sub-components, under which detailed policy provisions are made. It is of particular significance that this policy includes the ownership and management of the DHMIS. For the DHMIS to continue to provide the essential information it generates, and for its limitations to be overcome, it is imperative that health managers at national, provincial, district and facility levels assume full ownership of this system.
