Assessing the quality of USAID ASSIST Zika program data in the Dominican Republic

The USAID Applying Science to Strengthen and Improve Systems (ASSIST) Project implemented Zika related health systems strengthening efforts in the Dominican Republic from January 2017 through May 2019. The objectives of this study were to: 1) assess the validity of three quality improvement indicators reported by ASSIST-supported quality improvement teams (QITs); 2) determine whether data quality changed over time, and 3) understand the perceptions and practices of quality improvement teams about how data had been collected; what factors have facilitated or inhibited data collection; and possible ways to improve data collection, analysis, and dissemination.
