Real-time data for decision making



Informed decision making starts with the availability of good quality, timely data. This session describes 3 initiatives that make data available in real time to inform decision making. In Malawi, UNICEF used ODK to implement a social accountability project to increase citizen voices for improved services in reproductive, maternal, neonatal, child, and adolescent health. In eSwatini, the HC4 project (implemented by JHUCCP) is using an online data dashboard of collected data to strengthen the capacity of local leaders to support community-led HIV prevention and response. And Medic Mobile has incorporated a family equity survey into their app to help influence CHW programmatic decisions and care coordination in the settings in which they work.
