eHealth Africa is focused on improving healthcare by creating effective ways to implement reliable health information management systems. We have developed eHealth and mHealth solutions that can be rapidly deployed to manage patient information, streamline clinical procedures, and provide data and analysis on health program outcomes. Accurate health data will provide NGO’s, hospitals, and donor agencies with access to timely health system indicators needed to evaluate their health interventions and respond to critical public health needs. We bring about positive change by harnessing the potential of technology, valuing the power and knowledge of local people, and maintaining a sharp focus on the health worker. To help close the gap in access to health care we have developed and share a depth of expertise in:
eHealth and mHealth software and solutions
Geographic Information Systems
Training and capacity building for sustainable health systems
Research and data analysis
The Emergency Capacity Building (ECB) Project was a global initiative implemented jointly by six international humanitarian organizations. In Indonesia, the ECB consortium consists of CARE International, Catholic Relief Services, Mercy Corps, Oxfam GB, Save the Children, International Medical Corps and World Vision Indonesia. The ECB Project in Indonesia started in 2005 and officially ended in August 2013. However, members of the ECB Indonesia consortium agreed and are committed to continuing the partnership and collaboration that has been well established under the ECB project. The purpose of maintaining the partnership is to strengthen the capacity of the ECB members in emergency response and preparedness programming through coordinated effort in emergency assessments and response, sharing of information and/or resources as appropriate, as well as through various joint activities to improve the capacity of the Parties’ staff and local partners in emergency response programming.

Two decades of civil strife in Somalia resulted in the loss or damage of most of the water and land-related information collected over the previous half century. To alleviate the critical shortage of water and land information, a group of interested stakeholders decided together with Somali authorities that a new overview of these resources was needed, in the form of datasets based on structured, up-to-date and location-specific observations and measurements. The result was SWALIM.
SWALIM, the Somalia Water and Land Information Management project, is an information management program, technically managed by the Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations (FAO) in Somalia and funded by the European Union (EU), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the Common Humanitarian Fund (CHF). SWALIM serves Somali government institutions, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), development agencies and UN bodies engaged in assisting Somali communities whose lives and livelihoods depend directly on water and land resources. The program aims to provide high quality water and land information, crucial to relief, rehabilitation and development initiatives in Somalia, in order to support sustainable water and land resources development and management.

Our group is a network of volunteers who are based at the Yellow House in Sanepa, Nepal.
We got together on Day 3 of the big Q (April 27) and have been working every day since. We meet regularly and evolve according to needs.
Our three main focus of work has been:
1) Planned/targeted missions: 179 as of 11:11 am on May 14.
For daily updates and to keep track of our 3 Ws regarding Relief Distribution - What, Where, When - please follow the link below.
2) In order to coordination with other volunteer groups, bigger organizations and the government, we have been working closely with Kathmandu Living Lab's crowdsourcing platform - Quakemap.org
3) Hub for volunteers and anyone wanting to offer help. Yellow House has been a great spot to physically connect with, network and exchange ideas with like-minded folks. With that in mind, we launched our Initiative for Children on May 13. Artists, educators and counselors met in the evening. We will post updates regarding this initiative.
Thanks for your continued support and keeping us in your thoughts.
