This slide illustrates WHO Health System Building blocks i.e. Leadership and governance, health financing, health workforce, medical products and technologies, information and service delivery and how HIS contributes to the health system improvement. As you can see a Strong HIS is key to all the building blocks. The HIS stages tool explains how to progress toward a strong HIS, monitor and measure the progress. This tool helps identify gaps and appropriate interventions to overcome those gaps. It also help determine which other tools are useful. For example, assessment might highlight data use or interoperability or routine system performance management as key issues for which you can use appropriate tools.
Here are few examples of freely available capacity building resources.
