Hi Uchenna Okafor, thank you for reading our proposal and for your questions! In our projects we are very conscious not to address project participants in broad categories e.g. 'migrants', since there is such diversity within this group. Understanding who's not in the room - what marginalised groups we need to actively include in our projects - is really important. Regarding disabled communities specifically, our team in Indonesia has worked extensively with disabled communities to map evacuation routes during disasters (quick video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YI1UmwpVFqw) and we hope to learn from their approach to best adapt to this context. Two things we would pay particular attention to are accessibility of transport routes, and medical services, amongst other ideas sourced from the communities themselves during project inception. Thanks very much, and let me know if you have more questions!

Hi Sadam Matsawili, thank you for taking the time to read our proposal! There's more information on www.hotosm.org if you'd like to learn about our approach. Thanks, Rebecca

Rebecca commented on OmniVis Mobile Cholera Testing Platform

Hi, I was interested to read your proposal as it links to some of the infectious disease elimination work we do at Humanitarian OpenStreetMap (hotosm.org). Looking at your app, it seems whilst the data is useful at an individual patient/local community level, another larger value is sharing maps of places affected by cholera with decision makers who might not have access to granular community level info. I'm wondering how you go about this?
