Research question

Can geospatial algorithms be used by disease programs to help identify hotspots at community and Implementation Unit level?

Notes

This project builds on work conducted in collaboration with the Task Force for Global Health, the Disease Prevention and Control Bureau, Department of Health, Philippines and the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation, Haiti. While not a formal collaborator, we will also continue to work with Australian National University and will be supporting FHI 360’s Act to End NTDs | West Program to use the tool developed under this project.
