IFRC Fighting Malaria, Measles and Supporting WASH Projects with Rapid Mobile Surveys

Share

Developed by the International Federation of the Red Cross (IFRC), the Rapid Mobile Phone (RAMP) data collection – running on Magpi – enables national Red Cross and Red Crescent societies, governments and other partners to conduct rapid mobile surveys, at low cost, with limited or no external assistance, all over the world.

These surveys are used to evaluate programs for malaria, measles, water & sanitation, and other threats to life and health around the world, including client satisfaction, program effectiveness, logistics and supply chain issues.

“We were producing preliminary results within 24 hours and a draft report within three days, as opposed to three months with pencils and clipboards.”

– Mac O., IFRC
