PSI Google Mapping Project

  1. 1. PSI’s Google Mapping ProjectMEASURE GIS Working Group MeetingWashington, DCApril 27, 2011Kim Longfield
  2. 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. 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. 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.
  5. 5. 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
  6. 6. Sample Applications: BCC event mapping, Condomavailability in HIV priority areas (Tanzania)
  7. 7. Health FacilityMapping inEthiopia
  8. 8. The Swaziland condom landscape
  9. 9. STI & HIV Screening & Testing in Laos
