Mapping Health Indicators and Health Infrastructure in Eastern Indonesia

A previous PSLP-funded project on pilot applications of health mapping in NTT (July 2008-June 2009) demonstrated efficient rapid field assessment of health facilities in three districts, clinic health data mapping and service availability mapping, and developed a system for efficient recording, reporting and visualisation of clinic health data.

The current project (1 Sept 2009- 30 Sept 2010) aims to expand the infrastructure assessment to also record services (e.g. emergency obstetric) available at the health facilities, to extend health mapping capability to more districts, to evaluate the impacts of implementing a clinic database for recording, reporting, and visualising health data, and to develop train-the-trainer capacity in health mapping in NTT.
