Orodata Science, a non-profit and civic technology organisation, has announced the commencement of a data collection project in six states to enhance policy formulation in the health sector.

According to a statement by the organisation, the primary objective of the project is to collect vital health-related data from designated primary healthcare centres.

The organisation said the project, which will begin on August 30, would span three months.

“The states selected for the project include Anambra, Benue, Cross Rivers, Osun, Sokoto and Taraba states, representing a diverse cross-section of Nigeria’s population,” the statement reads.


“The overarching goal is to augment the quality of healthcare provision, facilitate informed regional policy formulation, and establish a dependable repository of healthcare data, fostering more effective and evidence-driven decision-making processes.

“Centred on enhancing primary healthcare provisions, the data collection initiative will assume a pivotal role in discerning prevailing health concerns, assessing current assets, and advancing health infrastructure within the designated areas.

“Harnessing the potential of data, Orodata Science endeavours to empower regional communities, policymakers, and healthcare professionals with well-founded insights.


“This enables them to make judicious decisions and effectively tackle urgent health challenges based on evidence-driven approaches.

“Since 2020, Orodata Science and Open Cities Lab (OCL) has engaged in a collaborative effort.

“This involves gathering comprehensive data and developing tools in alignment with a mutual dedication to propel health innovation, fairness, and inclusivity in Nigeria.

“Drawing wisdom from past undertakings, our joint endeavours are actively reinforcing healthcare systems, ultimately contributing to a healthier future for communities across Nigeria.”


The statement added that those interested in volunteering as data collection experts should see the call for volunteers.
