Thanks to All ePHM Staff for a wonderful course. I have learnt many things, like how to monitor and evaluate a national health programme; analyse the data and make use of this data to improve our work.Vishwanath BR
Being a business management graduate, i had less knowledge about the health programmes working as Block Programme Manager under National Health Mission. After enrolling to the ePHM course, i have learnt about the national programme in depth and gained more knowledge. This course helped me out in analysis and interpretation of the data which depends on the indicators. Now i can easily validate the data regarding the health programmes especially in Health Monitoring Information System. I am very thankful to our state health department and IPH Bangalore team.Sahana BA
