India faces an enormous challenge in the area of child survival. The Government and different non-government organizations have undertaken various initiatives to improve the status of Child Health in the country and this has generated an abundant resource of valuable information. However this information lies scattered and is often inaccessible to the public and other stakeholders.
Efficient management of ‘health information’ is imperative for informed decision making and for attaining effective programmatic outcomes. Digital repositories have nowadays become the preferred source of information management. This paper describes the development of a digital repository of information on child health developed by the National Child Health Resource Centre at the National Institute of Health & Family Welfare, Delhi, using the open source content management system Drupal. This repository has been developed as a comprehensive source of information on child health and related maternal health.
