Authors: Gaida Mahgoub, Stephen Hellen
In 2013 Catholic Relief Services and partners conducted a study in Sierra Leone to assess prevalence, prevention, and control efforts of Malaria. Data was gathered via mobile devices and ArcGIS Online was used geovisualization. CRS used point density tools and choropleths to compare prevalence of malaria, preventative approaches, and access to health facilities across the country. Results were useful to quantifiably demonstrate the efficacy of preventative measures to relevant stakeholders.
