Welcome to NDMC


The National Data Management Center for Health (NDMC), under the Ethiopian Public Health Institute (EPHI), is responsible to archive health related data. Distinctively, the center shoulders the responsibility of processing and managing researches on community health. Besides, the center is known to apply robust data analytic techniques to apply synthesis evidence. That, on its part, has been an input to ensure evidence utilization for decision making by the Federal Ministry of Health (FMoH) and other relevant stakeholders at all levels. NDMC has collaborative partnership with the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington, and has established a unit studying and documenting burden of disease at a national level.
