Health Systems 20/20 Health Systems Database.
This easy-to-use web-based tool compiles and analyzes country data from multiple sources, provides charting options, and generates automated country fact sheets, helping users to assess the performance of the country’s health systems.
The Health Systems Database draws data from publicly available and internationally comparable databases. Sources are publications from the World Health Organization (WHO), the World Bank, and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF). More recent data may be available from other sources including in-country sources. The user contribution section of this tool is designed to capture and share such information.
The tool offers a user-friendly interface with several types of graphing and mapping features as well as a flexible data download system that provide key health systems information for any selected country. Comparisons with peer countries in the region and income group are provided, which allows for some benchmarking of performance, especially when international standards for benchmarking are not available.
Country Health Systems Fact Sheets provide automated profiles, covering multiple health systems functions, for any low income or lower middle income country.
The Health Systems Database complements the recently released Health Systems Assessment Approach: A How-To Manual and, therefore, it closely mirrors the framework and quantitative analysis presented in the manual.
Key health systems indicators are organized around seven technical modules:
Health service delivery,
Pharmaceutical management, and
Health information systems.
Health Governance: Concepts, Experience, and Programming Options
