Why we’re not staying quiet about the BAO Dataset Library

The BAO Dataset Library is now publicly and freely available through an investment from the United Kingdom’s Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO). BAO Systems was recently selected as one of three recipients of the COVIDaction Data Analysis and Use Challenge.  

“We (FCDO) are investing in open sourcing the BAO Systems Data Library to support the use of globally available public data sets (think DHS Program, World Bank, and WHO data) together with compliant DHIS2 data sets by those using the DHIS2 COVID-19 Surveillance Package.”

The free use of these data, together with COVID-19 surveillance data in DHIS2, allows organizations, governments, and others to better monitor programming during this global pandemic.  You can use your analytics tool of choice, or access the data library through the BAO Analytics Platform to enrich analysis and uncover new insights.

Upon receiving the COVIDaction award, Steffen Tengesdal, BAO Systems’ CEO said:  “In this digital era, numerous data sets relevant to COVID-19 are already publicly available, but not easily accessible to those without a technical background in data science. With our curated library of publicly available datasets spanning different sectors, we aim to break down this user barrier and empower decision makers to more rapidly access datasets relevant to combating COVID-19.”
