In recognition of International Women’s Day, we thought we’d share two of the many ways that SurveyCTO partners have been using mobile data collection to improve the lives of women and girls around the world:

HIV Research in Rwanda
The Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation (EGPAF) reflects on how transitioning from paper-based data collection to using SurveyCTO on tablets improved the survey experience for both nurses and patients while also saving money, improving data accuracy, and drastically reducing the time between data collection and analysis.

Assessing Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health in Sierra Leone
How do you use mobile technology to collect data in a country with very limited connectivity? John Snow, Inc. (JSI) shares how SurveyCTO enabled them to implement a baseline assessment focused on maternal, newborn, and child health despite limited Internet AND electricity.

If you’re a SurveyCTO user with a story about how your work has impacted the lives of women and girls, we encourage you to join the International Women’s Day conversation on Twitter or Facebook with the tag #IWD2016. Keep up the good work!
