At this month's mapathon, we will map the regions of Koumra and Goundi to improve their response to a recent yellow fever outbreak, and for other ongoing and future public health operations in the area. Our guest speaker will be Ngomi Dendibaye, a finance and accounting manager who currently works in an MSF project in Chad.

A special initiative founded by Doctors Without Borders, the American Red Cross, the British Red Cross, and the Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team, Missing Maps is powered by volunteers around the world. Using OpenStreetMap, an open, free, and crowd-sourced platform, volunteers map underserved regions in order to provide international and local NGOs and individuals with geographic data to better respond to crises.

At this virtual mapathon, we will be mapping parts of the world's most remote locations to help MSF respond more effectively to humanitarian emergencies like disease outbreaks, natural disasters, and more. Beginner and experienced mappers are welcome to join this event.
