Data Lab jointly with the Soros Foundation-Kyrgyzstan and Open Society Foundations organizes a two-day advocaton: “Right to health”.

The objective of the event is to promote “Open data in health care” initiative through an intensive study of open data, ways of collecting them, their interpretation and visualization. The outcome of advocaton should be advocacy campaigns aimed to improve access to life-saving medicines, prevention, treatment and care for vulnerable and marginalized populations, as well as mainstreaming of corruption in the health care system.

We encourage the NGOs staff, civil activists, designers, journalists, data analysts, PR specialists and IT specialists to participate in the event.

After intensive training on data advocacy, storytelling, data processing and visualization, communications the participants working in teams will develop their own data-based advocacy campaigns with the help of our trainers and mentors.
