4 We are always giving patient forms and data to our M&E Unit, who then gives data to donors and the government. I am the head doctor and I never have the chance to look through the data before they go up. We just keep giving data up and up, and we never hear back about it… Head of ART facility, Nigeria

5 Importance of Feedback Information needs to be shared: At timely and regular intervals Within, between, up, and down Paves path between data collectors and users at all levels of the health system

15 When developing a feedback mechanism, consider… The information being shared Who will benefit from feedback The format of the feedback mechanism The forum in which the feedback will be shared How often the feedback will be provided How the feedback will move to the next level Document the process
