Mapping global health at IHME

October 22, 2009

If you were to make a list of UW-affiliated organizations doing world-class work…well…you would have long list.  Certainly, somewhere near the top is the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME).  If you are unfamiliar with their work, this somewhat dated article is a good introduction.

I was pleased to attend a talk on Wednesday by Christina Woods at the IHME’s Belltown offices highlighting the use of geographic information systems (GIS) in world health research.  She recently advised the IHME’s implementation of a web-based global health GIS application, shown below.

I hesitate to share this, since the IHME has a limited number of chairs, but you can sign up for advance notice of upcoming seminars here.
