BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE

The prices of basic necessities (e.g., maize flour) are very important. If prices increase, you buy less with the same money, reducing your purchasing power. In this project, the Ministry of Economy and Finance intends to investigate the possibility of collecting reliable price data using crowd-sourcing technologies.

If it works, the advantage of this approach is that it brings data in real time, with a much more detailed geographical coverage than currently exists and at a low cost.

Based on the results, the Ministry of Economy and Finance hopes to identify the best way to collect price data and then develop a platform on a national scale.

The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE

The Ministry of Health (MISAU), in fulfilling its mandate to provide health services to all Mozambicans, has drawn up the Strategic Health Sector Plan (PESS) 2014-2019 with a view to “helping all Mozambicans, especially target groups vulnerable, to enjoy the best possible health, at an affordable cost. ”

Despite the existence of a lot of health information available to help citizens to avoid contracting diseases as well as taking initial measures whenever symptoms arise, the segment of the population that most needs this information is often deprived of it, due to the means of communication. communication used.

Email / Internet campaigns rarely reach hidden areas, and many citizens remain without the means to buy televisions or enough energy to power this device. It is for these reasons that we found a possible solution on mobile phones, and in particular the Educational Health Information Platform (PENSA).

The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.
