The (AHI) was intended to be a district-based public health information
network for African health. It aimed to provide a technology platform to
collect sub-national health data and statistics for analysis and
dissemination. This data would in turn be used to facilitate decision
making in health, and to strengthen the capacity of African countries to
use information in decision making.
AHI completed a scoping study, which was carried out in selected
countries to assess the existing environment in the use of ICT in public
health at district level.
