Disaster Risk Management and the COVID-19 response in Afghanistan

Source(s):  ActivityInfo (BeDataDriven)
Aga Khan Development Network (AKDN)

Following the fast developments related to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), Aga Khan Agency for Habitat Afghanistan (AKAH, A) presented ActivityInfo to the Ministry of Public Health of Afghanistan (MoPH) as a solution and the teams jointly worked on streamlining data management related to COVID-19 data in the 34 provinces of the country. In March 2020, the MoPH and AKAH, A started collaborating and in May 2020 their synergy resulted in the creation of a system that linked 34 provinces of Afghanistan with the Crisis Coordination Center in Kabul. The system is used to manage data related to the COVID-19 response, in ActivityInfo.

Aga Khan Agency for Habitat Afghanistan (AKAH, A) operates in 7 provinces in the country and has already reached more than 730 villages. As the agency is collecting a large amount of information related to hazard data in a wide geographic range, it becomes crucial to be able to have access to real-time data so as to make timely and informed decisions. AKAH, A started using ActivityInfo in 2019 with the aim to replace the former paper-based data collection system. Today, 80% of the data collection handled by the agency is managed via ActivityInfo.
