Health care is an arena in which spatial analysis has a natural fit. For instance, diseases are geographically dependent phenomena and so epidemiologists are familiar with the use of geographic methods.

Team members established the Ministry of Health Surveillance Department GIS. Ministry staff were trained in the operation of ArcGIS for processing surveillance data and production of incidence maps.

A strategic plan for the expansion of GIS usage to help the Department better meet the operational needs of the Ministry of Health and the country, was produced.
