Innovation (scientific, societal, economic)

MDGs and
disaster

epidemiology

… 4 out of 8 goals are
health
-
related

(hunger, child mortality, maternal health
and infectious diseases)


… least progress in
populations affected and
displaced by conflict and
disasters

(an estimated 700m people per year!)

Challenges (1):

data availability

More
and better spatial data
needed
:

-
endemicity

of
parasites
(vectors) and diseases?

Sampling of displaced populations

-
Producing sampling frames
from satellite imagery
-
>
recent research

conducted by
Chris Grundy (LSHTM) and
MSF


Challenges (2):

health data collection

Challenge (3):

methods

Comparative and trend analysis
with non
-
systematic samples in
space and time from multiple
sources

-
Bayesian Networks?
