2.2 What’s ahead?

Creating national health numbers for all citizens of the Autonomous Region of Iraqi Kurdistan. The first focus for the upcoming years is to introduce a national health identity (HNID) for each citizen accessing health services provided by the hospitals and health centers monitored by and coordinated with the MOH of the KRG. Once this is in place, the HNID will be integrated into the Kurdish DHIS2 platform.

Expanding the system for a complete coverage of the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan. The second major goal set for 2021 is to involve at least 300 health centers in the KRG-DHIS2 platform, in order to reach a complete coverage of the territory.

Setting up a high-quality epidemiological health surveillance system in the Autonomous Region of Kurdistan. While achieving this goal, the teams hope to extend their DHIS2 expertise to other areas besides health, such as programs of demographic or environmental interest.
