Nafundi shares tech insights at Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation

The Institute of Health Metrics and Evaluation is a research institute working in the area of global health statistics and evaluation. As stated on their website, their goals are "to identify the best strategies to build a healthier world. By measuring health, tracking program performance, finding ways to maximize health system impact, and developing innovative measurement systems, IHME provides a foundation for informed decision-making that ultimately will lead to better health globally."

Much of IHME's work is captured in their Global Burden of Disease report which is a critical tool for evidence-based health policymaking and their Global Health Data Exchange, the world's most comprehensive catalog of surveys, censuses, vital statistics, and other health-related data.

IHME is very data-driven and so it was an honor for our team to be invited to share our insights on collecting data at scale with smart forms on phones and tablets. Below are the slides from the talk we gave.
