Creating a Malaria Data Integration and Visualisation System
Mark Westra and their team at the Akvo Foundation in the Netherlands will build a central data integration platform for malaria that assembles existing data from a variety of sources and enables it to be easily visualized, analyzed, and shared by all types of users. They will build an initial system and test it with a first set of users composed of key groups of stakeholders and users in multiple countries. This will help them gain a detailed understanding of what different users need from such a platform to ensure it becomes a valuable resource for the community. This information will then be used for iterative product development to build in additional functions and integrate new sources of data.
