  • 2. The Google Mapping Projecto Partnership with Google.org, initiated early 2010o Objectives:  Increase the use of maps for planning, monitoring, advocacy within PSI country offices  Increase access to health outlet locations – private and public facilities, pharmacies – through Google’s web-based mapping tools, for use by public health organizations but also for the general public.o Part of a broader Google.org project to strengthen national health systems in Africa and South-East Asia.
  • 3. How it workso Small grant from Google to test in 6 pilot countries during 2010: Ethiopia, Laos, Mozambique, Nepal, Tanzania, Zimbabweo Platforms receive technical assistance, tools and capacity building on GIS and mapping - to more efficiently use, manage and share information for monitoring and planning purposes.o Health outlet mapping surveys are incorporated into existing surveys/monitoring activities.o PSI platforms publish the location of “Point of Interest” (POIs) through Google Maps: share basic health service data with MoH, donors, partners.
  • 4. Initial Resultso So far, some 20,000 outlet locations provided to Google, and accessible through Google Maps and Google Earth – from the 6 pilot countries but also from many others: Kenya, Madagascar, Pakistan, Swaziland, Central America,…o Positive response from many local partners, incl. MoH, donors, partner NGOso Increased internal capacity on mapping tools and applications, for project planning, monitoring, reportingo Complements traditional GIS activities: dynamic maps become accessible to program managers, field staff, etc.

Next Stepso Document experiences from 2010 piloto Disseminate technical support documents: Google Mapping Toolkito Strong demand from non-pilot PSI platforms to start using the tools: scale- up during 2011o Increase involvement of partner organizations (MoH & others)o Maintain health outlet locations up-to-date (Google MapMaker) & disseminate additional venues, particularly PSI franchise networks
