Malaria accounts for nearly 8,000 deaths in Zambia each year—with 50% of those deaths being children under the age of five. With Tableau and PATH, we used data visualization to answer the toughest questions about malaria—like how and where people are being infected—to help Zambian leaders get closer to eliminating the disease.
At its core, data visualization is about empowering people with the information they need to find solutions. Now thousands of decision-makers in Zambia are empowered to lead their communities out of this issue.
The idea that we can—through data visualization and the communication of that information—help eliminate malaria from this region, is incredibly awesome.
