The study surveyed Influence of Health Information Management Practices On HIV/Aids Surveillance in Tertiary Health Institutions, North-East, Nigeria. Survey design was used in the study. A total of 382 healthcare providers were proportionately selected out of a population   of 5,050 from the whole 9 tertiary health institutions in the North-East. A self-structured and validated questionnaire was used for data collection. Data analysis involves the use simple regression. The study revealed that HIM education and research practices had significant influence on HIV/AIDS core, incidence, behavioural and enhanced perinatal surveillance data in tertiary health institutions in North-East, Nigeria. (Adj. R2 = 0.454, F (380) = 317.408, P < 0.05).  The study underscores the need for regular training of healthcare providers to understand the importance of integrating the components of HIV/AIDS core, incidence, behavioural and enhanced perinatal surveillance data in the tertiary health institutions in North-East, Nigeria. It was recommended that the management of 9 tertiary health institutions in the North-East, should appreciate the understanding of health information management education practice by healthcare providers which in turn enhance the integration of HIV/AIDS core, incidence, behavioural and enhanced perinatal surveillance data through sorting, categorizing and classifying of the disease by type.
