Abstract

Infant mortality is a sensitive indicator of development of a country and investing in the health of children. Since 1997 Morocco has been engaged in a the program of the integrated care of the child. We evaluated the information system of the integrated child-care program and the opportunity for collecting reliable data and good quality necessary to identify priorities. We conducted an evaluation of the information system of the integrated child-care program performed at the province of Salé and that of Rabat. We included 135 health professionals. The evaluation was carried out according to World Health Organisation criteria. We used a comprehensive sample of Provincial Epidemiology Units' involved health professionals, Service Infrastructure and all Health Centers in the region involved in the integrated child-care program. We administered a questionnaire The Rate of participation 65s%. The system was considered easy by 72.7%. The reports were timely sent for 27.2%. These Reports we reproduced in 60% of health professionals involved in the integrated child-care program. The System was useful for 63.6%. The Data were only processed locally and in 27.2%. The Feedback was provided to the relevant structures in 9%. 81% have received training in the integrated child-care. This system is considered useful to estimate the burden of disease and allows the allocation of resources necessary for its operations, it is simple, relatively acceptable hence the need to provide significant efforts to improve the quality of the information produced: Generalizing the integrated child-care program to the entire region; Promoting the decentralization of the system at the regional level; Further developing the communication network between different levels: information and feedback; Adapting the system to the needs of users by simplifying collections of records and promoting the analysis of data collected.
