At the end of the discussion, Dr. Kayembe shares one take-away for you, the audience. He says: “I think that people should understand that we’re not collecting data just for the sake of collecting data. So collecting data because the data is showing exactly what is going on, what we are doing, and where we should go. So it is very important. So there is no program without data.”

Reflect on this statement. How will this advice impact your own efforts in your program or context?
