Lwala Community Alliance - I appreciate your thorough and multifaceted response to our questions about data privacy. You clearly have the requisite experience that is necessary to build a strong foundation for ethical use of data, both in terms of your infrastructure and your community involvement. Thank you!
I love your idea to use mapping as a way to make health data work hard for the local community instead of just sitting in some underutilized bin somewhere! Your overall concept seems a fantastic way to create useable information that empowers community health workers to target their outreach services more effectively. I particularly thought the extension of the concept to best understanding how to present the data to community members was laudable. Information, especially when understandable and actionable, can be a powerful tool for everyone. One question sprang to mind as I was reading about your project - what are your thoughts on how to best engage CHWs and community members in considering how to balance the benefits of sharing data with privacy needs?
