Legal and Policy Framework for Health Information and Health Data Reporting (draft)

This Document examines the legal framework relevant to the creation and use of health information in Ghana. It is also written as the basis for the drafting of a comprehensive legislation governing reporting in the health sector.

The framework aims to take the healthcare information system from an information gathering entity and data processing set up to knowledge management systems for improved decision-making. This requires that the multiple stakeholders work towards a common objective which is to deliver information to individuals, providers and planners, when and where they need, to make available information required to aid and support decision making for health and healthcare.
