Global Healthsites Mapping Project
The Global Healthsites Mapping Project is building a global commons of health facility data by making OpenStreetMap useful to the medical community and humanitarian sector. This open data approach invites organisations to share health facility data and collaborate to establish an accessible global baseline of health facility data. Understanding the health capacity of a region is a vital asset in times of emergency and for managing disease outbreaks events.
Priorities as a partner of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data
The Global Healthsites Mapping Project is focused on three key things:
- Enabling national health agencies and organisations to share and contribute data to OpenStreetMap
- Enabling collaboration between national health agencies and volunteer communities
- Connecting multiple data streams to build higher-quality data
