Abstract

Zimbabwe's health information system has developed over the years from a paper-based system using T-tally systems which had their fair share of successes and challenges. These challenges prompted the then Ministry of Health and Child Welfare, now, the Ministry of Health and Child Care and its partners to implement electronic health information management systems. This chapter therefore describes the challenges faced in Zimbabwe's health information management and how the Ministry of Health and Child Care and its partners responded to these challenges. The study also highlights success stories in health information management in the country. The purpose of the study is achieved through a literature review covering health information management in Zimbabwe.
