About the project

GRID3 Mapping for Health in DRC aims to strengthen the effectiveness and equity of vaccination interventions in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The project will deliver essential data about population distributions, characteristics, and movements as well as the location of settlements, health facilities and associated health catchment area boundaries; in combination with important activities related to gender and equity, and capacity development. As a result, key activities such as vaccination microplanning, will be significantly improved.
