Data Repository Unit
PPHA with the information technology support of PITB will work towards enhancing the quality, validity and reliability of data. The technical expertise housed within PPHA will help the governments in tracking progress and making evidence-driven decisions, thereby strengthening accountability. It will work closely with the Department of Health and the regulatory authorities for fully integrating existing and new data into decision making; promoting open access and use of available data; and increasingly facilitate statistical systems.
This will be done through the Division of Knowledge Management
The DRU-specific objectives of the Division are:
- To establish a data repository unit and serve as the information hub for all health-related data;
- To develop minimum data sets, information resources and tools;
- To collate analyze and provide decision makers with scientific and technical information for evidence based strategy selection and decision making.
