Health Data & Disaster Relief
The UN Foundation and Vodafone Foundation’s Technology Partnership is helping to bring to scale sustainable technology solutions to improve healthcare delivery in the developing world and disaster response wherever a humanitarian emergency occurs.
We supported the nonprofit DataDyne.org’s development of the first open source health data collection software, and now are working with DataDyne, the World Health Organization and national governments to equip over 800 health surveillance officers in Africa with powerful new mobile data-gathering tools. We also support the deployment of emergency communications capabilities to restore vital communications during humanitarian emergencies, resulting in improved response efforts in many recent disasters.
