How Good is the Data on NGO Aid Map?

Balancing the tension between providing enough, timely or high quality data is tricky – it’s often hard to do all of those things at once. Still, if data is not good enough it can’t be used, rendering transparency meaningless.

Before getting into what NGO Aid Map is doing to improve data quality, it’s worth revisiting what we mean by that. When we wrote about this topic last year, our definition of data quality had three dimensions:

Ebola Crisis: We are in this for the Long Haul

Since my letter regarding the Ebola crisis in September, 5,160 people have died with a total of 14,098 cases due to the worst Ebola outbreak in history. The actual numbers are probably far worse. Local, regional and international partners, including 30 InterAction members, are collaborating to operate Ebola Treatment Units, conduct contact and identification tracing and perform safe burials while mobilizing communities to contain the virus at its source. 

The Rohingya: Unpacking the Conflict in Myanmar

On July 9, I attended the House Committee on Foreign Affairs Hearing on spotlighting human rights in Southeast Asia. Throughout the hearing, there was one name I heard over and over: Rohingya. 

Travel Restrictions Are Obstacles to Fighting Ebola

The NGO community is getting mixed messages. At the same time humanitarian organizations are being encouraged to rapidly scale-up efforts to contain the deadliest Ebola outbreak in history, increased political rhetoric on travel restrictions threatens to create new barriers to the NGO community's response to this crisis.

Ebola – A Fragile Healthcare System’s Ripple Effects

Four years ago I traveled over a deeply washed away and rutted dirt track to visit villages in the northern Liberian jungle, in what is now the epicenter of the Ebola outbreak. I focused on a network of small health clinics, which were dealing with the scourges of war and the impact of gender-based violence. Once the emergency of war eased, foreign assistance for these clinics was cut – and now what remains of these clinics are at the heart of an Ebola outbreak.
