Planning, Research & Statistics

The Directorate of Planning, Research & Statistics develops health promotion and disease prevention plans which address priority endemic infectious diseases and non-communicable diseases. The Directorate conducts research to inform evidence-based policies and practice and make evidence-based practice the foundation of all programs. The Team also works with other government agencies and partners to promote partnerships and collaborations, especially towards strengthening the One Health approach.

In April 2017, the Directorate coordinated the development of a National Antimicrobial Resistance Situational Analysis and Action Plan, as well as the enrolment of laboratories into the Global Antimicrobial Resistance Surveillance System (GLASS)
