Geographic information systems

The geographic information systems (GIS) and planning unit is a specialist unit within Right to Care which works to find geospatial solutions, using advanced technology and platforms. GIS and planning has become integral to healthcare programming and decision-making.

GIS technologies are being used to:

work out where to place resources and facilities

understand local population dynamics and mobility

accelerate HIV epidemic control by tracking and tracing patients lost to follow up, by tracing contacts of index patients and by better targeting services

involve communities in mapping processes to get granular-level information

optimise specimen transport and delivery routes and resources

support data collection which can inform programmatic performance

    Treating health seriously, caring, making treatment available in South Africa and abroad.
