Manish Kumar, Senior Technical Specialist - Health Systems Strengthening
Research Project Personnel - MEASURE Evaluation
My research and implementation work is focused on development, institutionalization and improvement of health information systems (HIS) in the low-resource settings to enhance health system performance for achieving health outcomes. I have conducted innovative research on HIS improvement especially in the area of maturity models. I am the lead implementer and researcher at the University of North Carolina for the United States President's Emergency Plan for HIV/AIDS Relief HIS used by government, non-government and research organizations in more than 50 countries. I have also developed and published global public HIS toolkits and HIS training curriculum that was used by many countries, such as Uganda, Ghana, Guatemala, Kenya, Tanzania, Mali, and others.
