Mapping for Health: Opportunities and Obstacles in Open Source
Anna Clements & Isabel Shaw, Broad Street Maps
In the developing world, physical access to health care can be the number one factor in the utilization of services, and consequently, the health of a population. At Broad Street Maps, we believe that where you live shouldn't determine if you live.
Anna and Isabel will give a brief overview of Broad Street Maps’ current work, introduce some exciting opportunities emerging in the open source world for global health, and reflect on what it is like for non-developers engaging with open-source technology and communities.
