What is the context of this research?

How can we best map the work already being done in the name of global health and development? How can we use what we know about the β€˜On the Ground' successes, challenges and limits of this work to increase reach and impact?

What is the significance of this project?

I believe that amidst today's aid budget cutting it is all the more vital to share success stories about global health action. At the same time, the long term sustainability and comprehensive coverage of global health systems will be enhanced by more open, real-time, and real-world assessments of the durability and spatial selectivity of particular projects.

What are the goals of the project?

These funds will be used to develop and maintain the Changemap platform.

Budget

  • $4,500Development of the Changemap Platform
  • $500Maintenance and upkeep of the platofrm

The funds will be used for the development of the Changemap Platform. Once built, a portion of the funds will also be used to ensure that Changemap is here to stay.
