This title uses a case study of the health information system in Uganda and compares it to other systems utilized by different countries in diverse levels of development. It provides a new model of information behavior in which the value of information drives various information activities (unlike many information models which tend to give prominence to information needs). It is a valuable resource for health professionals, planners, and policy makers, as well as researchers interested in health information systems and their applicability in different environments.
