UNICEF works in some of the world’s toughest places, to reach the world’s most disadvantaged children. To save their lives. To defend their rights. To help them fulfill their potential.
Across 190 countries and territories, we work for every child, everywhere, every day, to build a better world for everyone.
And we never give up.
For every child, a fair chance
Uganda is one of the over 190 countries and territories around the world where we work to overcome the obstacles that poverty, violence, disease, and discrimination place in a child’s path.Together with the Government of Uganda and partners we work towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals, the objectives of the Uganda National Development Plan, and the planned outcomes of the United Nations Development Assistance Framework.

Under the supervision of the Health Specialist, consultant will support the CSD Section through documenting the inception, design, development and implementation of information/data systems e.g. FamilyConnect, mTrac and DHIS 2 in Uganda. Key support provided under this ToR will include meeting with MoH, UNICEF, partners and districts to document the design, development, implementation and lessons learned of the health facility and community health information systems UNICEF has supported in Uganda since 2011 i.e. DHIS 2, mTrac, FamilyConnect and the iHRIS Community Health Worker Registry.
UNICEF Uganda is making significant investments in improving programme and supply monitoring processes, coordination and quality assurance of key reporting processes, information systems, data collection and dissemination systems at the national and sub-national levels. The deployment of innovative solutions and particularly, information systems, that will reinforce monitoring efforts in a scalable and sustainable way as well as timely action/response is a key component of these investments in system strengthening. In this vein, UNICEF Uganda is working on translating the Government of Uganda and Ministry of Health policies and frameworks on information systems development to reduce programmatic, operational and reputational risks while improving the delivery and quality of information/data systems for enhanced end-use monitoring, real-time tracking of key indicators, and two-way communication with beneficiaries.
