Project description

Kutupalong Camp site experienced a very large and fast influx of Rohingya refugees between 2017 and 2019. Since the beginning of the influx, Médecins Sans Frontières has scaled up their community based surveillance to monitor diseases, respond to outbreaks of diphtheria, and has been responding to the massive water and sanitation needs. Understanding the growth of the camp is essential for preparedness activities as it helps to identify areas and people most at risk.


We want to test and show how MapSwipe could have helped in this situation. The results will be used to evaluate how the MapSwipe community can quickly identify changes in certain locations.
