The Ohio State University Global One Health initiative (GOHi) recently conducted two rounds of practical training on advanced data management and analysis using R.
In collaboration with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO)-Ethiopia, GOHi held the first training on August 9-11 at the GOHi Eastern Africa office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. GOHi facilitated the second training with the Ethiopian Public Health Institute (EPHI) from September 7-9 in Adama, Ethiopia. The workshops hosted 17 Public Health Emergency Management (PHEM) experts currently working on PHEM data management and analysis.
GOHi led these training courses as part of the Global One Health Summer Institute to build and strengthen the data management and analysis skills of both regional and national PHEM data experts and to fill the gaps in data analysis tools and software skills.
The training courses encompassed five different comprehensive modules: an overview of outbreak investigations and associated data, data cleaning, management and descriptive analysis using Excel, data analysis and modeling using R, basic data visualization using Power BI, and Manuscript Writeup.
