The annual ICT4D Conferences have proven to be an invaluable opportunity for NGOs, private sector organizations, universities, governmental agencies and foundations to share their experience in using ICT to increase the impact of development programs and to learn from each other.  In 2016, 715 individuals from 76 countries and 301 private sector and public sector and civil society explored the ways to harness the full power of digital solutions to achieve the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals.  Our thanks to Accenture, Catholic Relief Services, Esri, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, iMerit Technology Services, Inmarsat, IS Solutions, Making All Voices Count, Mercy Corps, Microsoft, NetHope, Oxfam, Pandexio, Qualcom Wireless Reach, RTI International, SimbaNet and World Vision for making that possible.

Find the malaria, Save a Life: How mSpray and GIS Improve Malaria Prevention


mSpray is a suite of mapping tools that puts IRS campaigns into efficiency overdrive. After enumerating structures from satellite imagery and QGIS, we send Spray teams into the field with cellular-enabled tablets, showing them where they are—and where the next house is they need to spray. When the team’s tablet is within 50m of a house, they can “tag” the structure as sprayed. The field teams (and their managers at headquarters) see each house visited and sprayed as they file their reports, right from the field. See the map to learn more about how this tool works.
