John Spencer’s recent presentation on GIS for the MEASURE Evaluation End of Project reminded me of the annual MEASURE GIS Working group meeting earlier this year. In his presentation, John talked about:

  1. An analysis looking whether conflict locations seem to have higher domestic abuse problems in Rwanda—a really neat piece of work.
  2. Research mapping HIV prevalence and prevention services in Iringa—an activity I got to work on when I started at MEASURE Evaluation.

The former illustrates the incredible growth of location-enabled health data. This lets us join together data collected by different people with different priorities, and examine them together based on geography. The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. In the latter, we see the power maps have to communicate program gaps to multiple stakeholders.
