GIS for spatial risk mapping training


The first GIS workshop focusing on GIS for spatial risk mapping was organized on January 23-24, 2020 during the first Regional Meeting of the second phase of the MediLabSecure project held in Dakar, Senegal.

Designed and animated by the modelling/early warning system working group (WP5), this one-and-a-half day training on GIS for spatial risk mapping and early warning was a first step to an eight week distance learning course on GIS applied to epidemiology.

It was also the beginning of a continuous GIS support to ensure that MediLabsecure representatives can use GIS in their professional activities related to disease surveillance and early warning.

The main objectives of the GIS training were:

  • To gain expertise in the use of Q-GIS to create spatial risk maps
  • To establish a GIS group within MediLabSecure
  • To ensure that each MediLabSecure participating country has GIS capacity to support decision support for spatial disease risk assessment in a one-health context
