Open Data, Program

The Open Geospatial Data Center for Health (OpenDCH) program aims to address gaps in both data supply and demand in Côte d’Ivoire, focusing on stakeholder engagement, alignment of data sources, and forging of data literacy. OpenDCH is a partnership between AidData, Development Gateway, the Ministry of Health, and USAID/Côte d’Ivoire, and is funded by PEPFAR.

To improve knowledge of HIV/AIDS in Côte d’Ivoire and inform efforts to combat the epidemic, the initiative conducted an extensive data collection and mapping exercise in 7 regions of the country, engaging over 140 people, and registering over 25,000 points of interest. 

The Storymap below takes us throughout the neighborhoods of Abidjan, to Bouaké and OpenDCH’s other focus areas, all the way to the Map-A-Thons hosted in Washington, D.C. Through Storymaps, we hope to make our mapping process more open, engaging, and share how it will complement ongoing efforts to combat HIV/AIDS.

You can explore the Storymap below, or access the full page here.

 

The Storymap is also available in French:
