The Countdown to 2030 regional initiative for West and Central Africa, led by the West African Health Organization in collaboration with the African Population Health Research Center (APHRC), teamed up with WHO and UNICEF to conduct its 3rd analysis workshop. The focus was on health facility data analysis for intervention coverage indicators and mortality/morbidity statistics for universal health coverage. Twenty countries nominated 60 participants – senior analysts from Ministry of Health, public health institutions and Universities – and brought their own district and national data sets for in-depth analysis using new tools and approaches. Data quality score cards, data adjustments and analyses of subnational levels and trends were presented in a country poster session at the end of the workshop.
