Quality assurance of routine data (6/10)

b) Choice of tool

A number of routine data quality assessment tools are being used in countries in routine assessment of data quality or during field supervision activities. The strengths and weaknesses of the main tools are summarised in the link below.

A questionnaire addressed to the NIPN countries revealed that almost all countries use the WHO DQR to assess routine data quality. WHO DQR is used as part of the DHIS-2 or separately as Excel sheet App to assess routine data quality using tracer indicator.

To sustain the routine data quality assessment by the NIPN country teams, this note recommends the use of WHO DQR (DHIS 2 integrated App or Excel Sheet format) for assessing nutrition indicators from routine data systems.
