Kasur Health Database and GPS Mapping

This project entailed designing and implementing a comprehensive geospatial health facility profiling in district Kasur, Punjab, Pakistan to assess and map over 1000 health facilities with collection of detailed data related to equipment, human resource and services, building structure and recording of GPS coordinates. The data was used to develop an IT application, enabling the program planners to map areas with critical deficits, ambulance and referral routes etc. This was followed by a financial analysis and cost evaluation of the exercise to devise TORs for a broader evaluation across province.
