Esri Launches Direct Relief 1 Million Health Workers Map

October 16, 2014  - By 1 Comments


Esri has launched a story map for the One Million Community Health Workers Campaign, which aims to expand and accelerate community health-worker programs in sub-Saharan African countries. With the use of the latest communications technology and diagnostic testing materials, these frontline workers link the rural poor to the broader healthcare system of doctors, nurses, hospitals and clinics.

The map was designed to be a constantly evolving tool, regularly updated with information submitted by organizations deploying community health workers across sub-Saharan Africa. The map is refreshed every month as new data becomes available. The date of the data refresh can be found in the legend.
