 Organizer: DATA-AFRIQUE CONSULTANCY (www.data-afriqueconsultancy.org)

Course fee: USD 1,000

INTRODUCTION 

This course offers an introduction to GIS and how it is used in public health and epidemiological research. It will introduce participants to the basics including working with and integrating spatial and non-spatial data; geographic scale and spatial precision; decoding; visualization; thematic mapping; and understanding spatial relationships. Specific skills and tools will be introduced in relation to assessing exposure to a range of environmental risks, and a particular focus will be given to methods for spatial linkage of exposure, contextual and confounder information for epidemiological or health risk assessment studies.

.COURSE OBJECTIVES

By the end of this course the participants will be able to:

Understand the basics of spatial data and its role in decision making

Undertake spatial analysis of environment and health data

Explain why geographic data and tools are important for health decision makers

Understand geography as a unifying framework and GIS as a tool to  collect, link, analyze, visualize, manage, and share data and information

Distinguish between the different tools used to collect, analyze, and   manipulate geographic data

Communicate with technical specialists to develop program-specific   geographic products Work with and integrate spatial and non-spatial data

Integrate data from different geographic scales and spatial precision

Geocode and visualize spatial data

Investigate spatial patterns of health risks and disease rates

Produce thematic maps and reports

DURATION

5 Days

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Public health practitioners, epidemiologists, exposure scientists, quantitative health geographers, risk assessors, students.
