The need to enable participation for TB management

Dr Christopher Dye, Director at the World Health Organisation (WHO), spoke at Web4Dev about his work around TB. WHO works with top-level governments and large networks to try to obtain TB information in a country. What he’s realised is that the information is at the bottom, with the people. If only they could be brought into the information sharing network.

At the “top” is the IT, processing power and tools for analysis. At the “bottom” is the data and information.

Enabling participatory activities that allow for that information to flow more freely from bottom to top and down again is critical to moving the needle in this space. This is what my presentation will be about.
