DCDJ Fellow, Dongo Evariste, built a data management tool to help traditional medicine centers in Côte d'Ivoire trace HIV/AIDS outcomes.
Working with local partners in Côte d'Ivoire, our DCDJ program built a searchable list of hyper-local datasets across the country related to topics of community interest. Through this inventory, local officials, clinicians, community groups, researchers, and others can contribute to and access information on datasets in the community.
With support from DCDJ, local youth in Côte d’Ivoire organized a successful mapathon to get community resources, landmarks, and risk zones in Daloa – particularly those relevant to young people – on the map. Through the process, they acquired new skills including OSM tracker to develop map layers, how to collect local data, and how to communicate results stored in a new database developed through the program.
