Covid-19 public health preparedness & response ops dashboard (UNHCR GDS & DRS)
Jan / 2020

When the pandemic started to spread in 2020, UNHCR saw the need of assessing the preparedness of the respective countries at country, site and urban situation level and displaying the results together with the People of Concern figures and the overall Country Case figures on a single dashboard. Additionally, the Public Health section wanted to pull in data from the Balance Score Card health Facility Assessments it had been supporting for several years. In order to pull it off quickly, we opted for developing an ESRI-based dashboard to display the additional requested data. The health facility coordinates collected through the Facility Assessments were turned into a GIS feature service in order to make them ready for display in other systems too. The dashboard also came with documentation on how to update certain fields, on how to make use of the scripts and also read in the data in other systems.

To know more about the dashboard developed by our team, please check out our 2020 Annual Report.
