Data and Information are the key drivers of any intervention and in SRH especially as it relates to young people, we often have a huge information gap that requires a multifaceted approach.
My assumptions are that we either have no to little information or fragmented pockets of data.
It would be necessary to develop a data warehousing model and policy to be implemented by member countries.
The focus would be on standardising data collection methodologies, data management and indicators.
The collected data is put into a common database that allows governments, organisations, research institutions, and other interested stakeholders to views data at various geographic scales to inform policy and targeting.
The user interface would be driven by an application that provides dashboards with basic information but has advanced statistical and spatial analysis capabilities allowing users to extract information products that suit their unique needs.
The motivation is that for us to make good interventions, we need data that is relevant and is presented to us in a more meaningful way. To achieve this two things are necessary :
1) Standardised data collection approaches
2) Common platform for analysing the data with simple dashboards but with advanced spatial statistics capabilities with inbuilt geoinformatics functionality.
