Learn more about ORCA

published 29 November 2018

The IDEAS sister project, ORCA, operating in Ethiopia, has just launched its new webpage. The project started in mid-2018 and is funded through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine.

 

The ORCA webpage provides regular updates on workshops and research which will strengthen the quality and use of routine health data. ORCA is a one of a kind project as it works in partnership with the Ethiopian Public Health Institute to directly support 38 analysts from the Federal Ministry of Health and the Pharmaceutical Fund and Supply Agency in their analysis and use of data for more effective decision making. The analysts are specialists in a variety of fields including maternal health, TB, malaria and immunisation.
