We are excited to announce that Ona will be at the ICT4D Conference in Lusaka from May 8–10, 2018. We will be represented by our CEO, Matt Berg, Director of Client Solutions, Erick Ngwiri, and Health Solutions Lead, Carolyn Gulas.

Visit us at the exhibition area at the Mulungushi International Conference Center (MICC) in Lusaka to learn more about our industry leading data collection platform, Ona, and the open source mHealth platform we support, OpenSRP. You can also learn more about of our latest offering, Canopy, an enterprise analytics solution designed to meet the specific needs of humanitarian and development groups.

Learn directly from our team how Ona works with humanitarian, government, and UN organizations all over the world to address some of the world’s great challenges through our end-to-end data solutions. Email us now to schedule a one-on-one discussion around your specific needs or to book a dedicated demo of any of our tools.

Erick will also be presenting how an open mapping platform, known as the Integrated Response Platform (built on Canopy Discover infrastructure), that we developed for DFID/UKAID is being used in Somalia to help better coordinate its humanitarian response. Through this platform, DFID has been able to monitor in real time how effective their cash transfer program across all regions in Somalia. Other humanitarian actors have also been able visualize the state of the response e.g. nutrition site performance vs. acute malnutrition levels for data informed decisions.

In this presentation Erick will also discuss Ona’s efforts to create an open standard for representing map visualizations of geospatial data and how these efforts are being replicated across the globe by partners like UNICEF and others in other humanitarian crisis situations like the Rohingya in Bangladesh.
