    Abstract

    This chapter will help you to determine the nature and the size of the data set that is required to assess the efficient and efficacious working of a decentralised health system. It will introduce some general principles in the development of health information systems and consider their particular relevance to the monitoring and evaluation of decentralised systems. It will assist you in the selection of key indicators employing (for illustration) the logical framework as a key instrument. It will help you to assess the appropriateness of methods of data analysis and reporting and to determine appropriate methods and channels of feedback to decision-makers and data providers.
