“What is WAHO looking to do with the data?” This is a question we’re often asked. For a start, we’re collecting data to provide countries with better visibility about outbreaks of epidemics. When you hear that there’s been an outbreak of say cholera in a country, you’ve no time to lose. With WAHO-DHIS2, we have a better chance of making decisions fast as we can read data, measure, and assess data, and act accordingly. When there’s an outbreak in a border area, there’s a high risk that infections will spread into the neighboring country. This is where the WAHO-DHIS2 technology can be used to share preventive information across several countries.
