The Health Situation Room concept

The Health Situation Room concept is an opportunity to strengthen analysis and response within health systems through the use of an innovative platform which allows governments, decision makers and programme managers to easily analyze and view a selection of key indicators relevant to the country. The main value added of the solution is its capacity to merge data coming from multiple national data sources (DHIS, LMIS, community data, etc.) into one system.

UNAIDS leadership in this domain positions it also in the UN-wide data revolution initiative and connects with broader health agenda in the SDG target 3 (“Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages”).

As part of the global commitment on Fast-Tracking the end of AIDS as a public health threat by 2030, UNAIDS is committed for improving efficient use of real-time data by focusing on location and population, and specifically cities.
