Country teams from Bangladesh, Cambodia, Fiji, India, Indonesia, Laos, Mongolia, Philippines, Thailand, and Vietnam participated in the event.
The primary objective of the forum was to bring multi-ministerial teams together to develop action plans to implement a country-led process to strengthen national Health Information Systems. The forum built on ongoing PEPFAR II and Global Health Initiative (GHI) efforts to strengthen national institutions and to accelerate this process through multisectoral advocacy and coordination to improve the policy environment and strengthen national institutions to use quality, timely, accessible health data to improve the delivery of health services.
