This annual publication of ours has been recognized as a useful document for all in the health sector, ranging from policy-makers and planners to the health managers and field workers.
2016 has been a year of special significance as the development partners have reiterated their commitment to continue efforts with us at all levels to enhance cooperation in health services. Successful holding of the ‘Regional Conference on Measurement and Accountability for Health’ appears to have brought a ray of hope for strengthening health information at a heightened level. The DGHS will continue utilizing its vast experiences earned through working with the concerned government bodies, NGOs, CBOs, private sector, civil society actors, media, national and international agencies, and other stakeholders to promote better health outcomes.
