Using Geographic Information Systems and mHealth to Inform Programming Using Geographic Information Systems and mHealth to Inform Programming Presentation Transcript

  • Using Geographic Information Systems and mHealth to Inform Programming Leah Denise Wyatt MEASURE Evaluation End-of-Phase-III Event, May 22, 2014
  • What additional information do you need for program planning?
  • The Data Revolution Has Begun On the front lines with geospatial data and tools John Spencer MEASURE Evaluation End-of-Phase-III Event, May 22, 2014
  • “We call for a data revolution for sustainable development…” “…improve the quality of statistics and information available to people and governments. “ “…indicators should be broken down in many different ways to ensure no one is left behind.” The Report of the High-Level Panel of Eminent Persons on the Post-2015 Development Agenda, United Nations Report, 2013
  • “…improving the quality, opening up access, and making better use of data … fundamental to achieving transformative development results.” Tony Pipa, USAID
  • “There are data sets and information resources across the government that could serve a greater good and be effective tools for change if they were made more accessible and usable… We want to collect these data—these potential change agents—and present them in their most creative and effective forms.” -- Dr. Rajiv Shah
  • Improved statistics broken down in many ways Making better use of data…fundamental to transformative results Relevant… measureable benefits Accessible and presented in effective forms Data revolution: Access to better data and effective use of data can lead to better results
  • The data revolution has already begun, geospatial tools are on the front lines.
  • Making data accessible: Building capacity for GIS Access to better data and effective use of data
  • Over 500 people participated in MEASURE Evaluation GIS capacity building activities during Phase III High Demand for GIS Skills
  • MEASURE Evaluation and MEASURE DHS developed in partnership, the first curriculum focused on Global Health that uses free GIS software. High Demand for GIS Skills
  • The interest is global, the impact is real Zambia: “Using what I’ve learned about QGIS, I’ve been able to combine population distribution, malaria morbidity and mortality, and analyze which interventions are viable.” Burma: “I’ve been able to integrate disease surveillance, public health intervention, and program valuation using GIS. We are developing a geo- database for Health Care Delivery Services.” Kenya: “The workshop has helped me incorporate a Spatial Information Management System into the National M&E System for the National AIDS Control Council in Kenya.”
  • Mapping of HIV hotspots and prevention services Iringa, Tanzania GPS data collection in Iringa, Tanzania Access to better data and effective use of data Yohana Mapala Andrew Inglis Marc Cunningham
  • Access to better data and effective use of data High risk areas and HIV prevention services were mapped. District health staff trained in the use of GIS and other data tools.
  • District health staff produced maps from the data and convinced decision makers to add 4 new care and treatment centers and locate them where they were most needed. Review of maps during data collection Iringa, Tanzania Photo by: Andrew Inglis, MEASURE Evaluation
  • Spatial analysis of intimate partner violence Mark Janko Shelah Bloom John Spencer Access to better data and effective use of data Photo by Kresta King: https://flic.kr/p/nMMip
  • Does a context of violence increase risk of intimate partner violence? Access to better data and effective use of data
  • Within a GIS, combine data on intimate partner violence and violent conflict Dataset Year Rwanda DHS 2010 Armed Conflict and Location of Event Database 1997 to present DHS Violent Conflict GIS Layers
  • Rwanda D. R. C. Not controlling for violent conflict Controlling for violent conflict Rwanda D. R. C. Rwanda D. R. C. Rwanda D. R. C.
  • Over the course of a year, an increase of ten days with nearby violent conflicts increases the odds of an individual reporting recent IPV by 11%. Access to better data and effective use of data
  • Analysis now possible because of improved data and tools. This type of analysis within reach of anyone with moderate GIS skills. Access to better data and effective use of data
  • There is more GIS data than ever before. There are more geospatial tools that make spatial analysis more accessible than ever before. There are more global public health professionals using GIS than ever before. Access to better data and tools for effective use of data
  • The data revolution has already begun.
  • Using Geographic Information Systems and mHealth to Inform Programming
  • Experiences from MEASURE Evaluation End-of-Project Conference May 22, 2014 Nena do Nascimento
  • mHealth Pilots
  • Before Implementation Begins Key Takeaways  Consider the value-added of mobile technology in pilot design  Use available data to inform mHealth pilot design  Conduct formative research to refine pilot design
  • Consider the Value-Added of an mHealth Pilot Design  What type of problem are you trying to solve?  Is mobile technology appropriate to solve it?  How is this different from what is already being done?
  • Use Available Data to Test Your Pilot Concept  Mobile phone ownership  People living with HIV  Literacy
  • AIDS Indicator Survey 2009
  • Conduct Formative Research to Inform Pilot Design  Electricity  Network coverage  Frequency of mobile phone use  Capacity to use mobile phones  Privacy/security  Cultural norms, gender norms
  • Prior to Implementation  Consider the value-added of mobile technology in pilot design  Use available data to inform mHealth pilot design  Conduct formative research to refine pilot design
