Data Mapping

Precision Public Health: transformative approaches to target and measure interventions to efficiently make impact

Population numbers and disease burdens rarely are reported at lower than district level. If disease was uniform across populations, and populations were spread evenly across space, interventions would be easy to plan. But we know this is not the case; more often than not, distribution of disease is heterogeneous. Knowing where disease burden is highest is critical to target interventions and reach the most susceptible. Knowing where people are is also critical, and in many developing countries with rapidly growing populations, good population data are lacking.

Mapping a Data Use Culture

Participants in this session will engage with an interactive HIV map data that has been
used in Malawi to highlight critical information gaps and bottlenecks for strategic planning
of digital systems. During the session you’ll experience the data for yourself in an analysis
exercises. Also featured in this session, experts will illustrate how data culture is a result of
data production plus information use multiplied by environmental factors. Presenters will
