... Information Systems •  espite initial PEPFAR-specific systems for program monitoring data, D PEPFAR has worked with partner country governments to integrate and strengthen health information systems, including work that has strengthened partner country Laboratory Information Management Systems. However, ongoing support to strengthen partner country health information systems -- and better alignment and integration with those systems -- is needed to enhance timely data availability and quality for use in strategic program planning, resource allocation, and commodities procurement.

... PEPFAR can contribute to fulfilling that need by leveraging and maximizing its investments in collaborative efforts to build the capacity of health professional training schools, which would improve the ability of coun tries to address not only HIV but also the dual burden of infectious and non-communicable diseases that many high-burden countries increasingly face. Adherence by partner countries to the Global Code of Practice on the International Recruitment of Health Personnel and followthrough on commitments to the Abuja Declaration could sup port both sustainability of their own health workforces and country ownership.

The Medical Education and Nursing/Midwifery Education Partnership Initiatives have provided a starting point for the training of physicians and nurses; however, the training of associate clinician providers and other cadres will also be critical to the sustainable management of the response.
