Helping Government, Donor and NGO data tell a story
Shining the spotlight on the projects you manage can help ensure that leadership decisions relating to the work you do are based on measurable outcomes. Over the years working within DHIS2, our team has developed a tool called Data Viz. It allows Governments, donors and NGOs (specifically the managers of health programs and their M&E teams) to demonstrate the results of your program delivery in an easy to access public-facing platform.
Data Viz is a web-based interface that uses data from DHIS2 platforms and turns it into graphs and maps. You can use the tool as a dashboard for monitoring and evaluation support. It can serve as a tool to help you speak about your project to stakeholders and demonstrate the results of the work you are doing. It fosters transparency and accountability between governments, donors and citizens.
While the most common users of Data Viz are focused on health data, DataViz can also be used for any other DHIS2 data set that requires visualisation (education, water & sanitation, etc…).
