Data collection tools

Monitoring the health situation, trends, progress and performance of health systems requires data from multiple sources on a wide variety of health topics. A core component of WHO’s support to Member States is to strengthen their capacity to collect, compile, manage, analyze and use health data mainly derived from population-based sources (household surveys, civil registration systems of vital events) and institution-based sources (administrative and operational activities of institutions, such as health facilities).
