The course presents a practical guide for using a geographic information system (GIS) to integrate, visualize, and analyze geographically-referenced data extracted from the Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS) and other key data sets to facilitate monitoring and evaluation (M&E) of HIV/AIDS and related health programs. To make the course accessible to learners without commercial GIS software licenses, the course focuses on the use of free and open source software (FOSS). The course includes a number of practical exercises which will allow you to apply what you have learned, using the FOSS – QGIS. These exercises are estimated to add an additional three hours to completing the course.
