Summary: 

Through comprehensive training activities, the Project team enhanced the capacity of stakeholders to use health information for better decision-making in health and other sectors, while identifying gender-specific health issues.  CSIH also worked closely with the medical universities and post-graduate training institutions in Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Georgia to integrate key concepts of health information into existing educational programs. This provided physicians and other health professionals with an understanding of the role of data and health information for clinical decision support as well as a general understanding of the role of health information for hospital governance, policy-making, and health planning. Another key component of the South Caucasus Health Information Project was the design and implementation of demonstration projects to support training and to put lessons learned into practice.
