Outcome Mapping: A monitoring and Evaluation tool for the Uganda


To establish a system to use PDAs to transmit disease surveillance data, reports related to HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and data for monitoring drug usage and stocks.

Objectives of the intervention:

The Uganda Health Information Network (UHIN) will support better health outcomes by enabling policy makers, planners and health providers to communicate critical information in a timely manner. It will also demonstrate the effectiveness of a locally controlled, low-cost ICT that can be easily replicated in other settings and serve other sectors beyond health. Additionally it will provide valuable experience in taking a technology project to a national scale in a short time span.

Why was OM chosen?

Outcome Mapping was used to fill a desire to place learning as a priority in project monitoring and evaluation; specifically, learning from the process of implementing an innovative way of capturing and transmitting data using technology in a low resourced environment.
