Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is a key function in optimising the management of HIV/AIDS care and treatment programmes. The availability of high quality strategic and health management information is fundamental to enabling successful implementation and cost-saving efficiencies of health programmes. PEPFAR has chosen to implement the DATIM system for collecting and management of data for the M&E of the programmes it supports. This system is currently being rolled out in countries around the world, including Rwanda. The overarching aim of this project is to support the Rwandan Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Strategic Information team (SI ITT) with the implementation of DATIM in Rwanda.
Jembi provides technical assistance and guidance on this CDC funded study to evaluate the clinical impact of using an electronic medical record (EMR) system in Rwanda for HIV care.
