DRC HEALTH LEGISLATION
Through forming a partnership with the African Women’s Council, Hale took an interest in developing case studies regarding the healthcare system of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. After acquiring approval from the federal government to conduct research services and work with the Ministers, Hale paved the way for a new system procedure to be implemented unifying clinicians, hospitals, and regionally-stationed government officials to better streamline data solutions for community-based, public health policy development as well as improve the standards of institutional transparency across the nation. We began our work with the goal of increasing communication between the health stakeholders of DRC through cultivating access to our multi-sectoral data democratization model, as well as providing analytics and consultation services to meet identified health needs for the allocation of resources.
Beginning in the North Kivu province (located in the Eastern Congo), Hale works with the Chief of Village, professors, doctors, Minister of Health, Minister of Infrastructure, and Minister of Mining to aid in collecting valuable data in geographic regions of the world where the WHO has denied assistance. Stemming from the national and even regional government not knowing accurate data from the people on the ground, Hale prioritizes training on identifying real from falsely-reported data, as well as forming partnerships with businesses, NGOs, clinics, doctors, and elected officials to stimulate good health for economic development.
Recognizing issues of malaria, HIV, and malnourishment as key priorities of the Congo, Hale is working to provide professionally-crowdsourced data to ministers and subsequent instruction on creating their own independent, sustainable strategies to foster an active feedback loop between the public and private sector-- impacting the population of over 500,000 people, and counting.
