HealthMapper 4.3.2 is a powerful application developed by World Health Organization (WHO) oriented to public health administrators at national or district level and aimed to become the standard for mapping and managing health information. The interface can be used in several languages.
It works using a map of the selected country or global region which is built using layers. These layers contain specific information about population, roads, safe water sources, schools, health infrastructure, and many more. The advantage of using layers is that they can be tuned on and off anytime. The program is organized through projects, that can hold one or more maps, each one containing different information and scenarios.
Besides the graphical information, HealthMapper includes the DataManager. This module is a database holding the information used to create the graphical representations, and some other general data about countries in many categories such as: economy, demography, nutrition, services, integrated disease surveillance, and many other. The DataManager also allows to access the screen and printer reports that HealthMapper can produce.

Publisher's description

The HealthMapper is a surveillance and mapping application, developed by WHO, that aims to address critical surveillance information needs across infectious disease programmes at national and global levels.
The HealthMapper is a user-friendly data management and mapping system customized specifically for public health users. The system facilitates data standardization, collection and updating of data on epidemiology and on interventions and provides immediate visualization of data in the form of maps, tables and charts.

The HealthMapper also packages a database of core baseline geographic, demographic and health information, including the location of communities, health care and education facilities, accessibility by road, access to safe water and demography. The system is currently in operation to support a range of infectious diseases in over 60 countries in all regions of WHO. Key infectious disease programmes currently using the system include Roll Back Malaria, Lymphatic filariasis Elimination, Buruli Ulcer, Guinea worm Eradication, Onchocerciasis Control Programme, and Polio Eradication. In 2003, the system supported the implementation surveillance of HIV/AIDS/STIs (sexually transmitted infections), Tuberculosis, Control of Communicable Diseases in Complex Emergency Situations, Outbreak Alert and Response and Integrated Management of Childhood Illnesses.
