Experience

Our team has been working alongside the UN since 2015 on a wide variety of health data projects. 

 

Data repository design for UNAIDS Geneva | Read the detailed UNAIDS Case Study here. The "AIDS Data Repository" project aims to improve the quality, accessibility and consistency of HIV data and HIV estimates by providing a centralised platform for countries to manage and share HIV data supported by UNAIDS. The project is built upon the large open source project CKAN which is used by many national and international organisations as a data management portal. We are consulting with international funding bodies and universities as well as with in-country data management teams to build this solution. 

 

 

Emergency Operations Intelligence for WHO Ukraine | Design and implementation of interactive data dashboards, used by WHO to inform their emergency operations in response to the humanitarian crisis in eastern Ukraine. The dashboard includes multiple datasets, with a customised user interface and tailored data visualisations. Special tools were developed to support spatial analysis of the data. The project was built upon the open source Superset business intelligence solution.

 

COVID-19 Data Management for FAO Bangladesh | We have supported an inter-agency UN team responding to the Covid-19 emergency in Bangladesh. Our consultants provided expert advice, technical capacity, and stakeholder liaison towards the task of integrating pandemic data from different national sources and systems. Work has included writing software requirements specifications, designing database structures, providing expert review, and developing automation of data flows.

 

 

Public Health Surveillance for WHO/UNICEF | We have developed and deployed tailormade electronic public health surveillance solutions at a national level in Jordan, Madagascar, Somalia and CAR. These systems are case-based, electronic, mobile, real-time, rapidly-deployable solutions. The Tablet computers with mobile data plans submit case based data to a secure central server. This data is anonymised, exported, processed, and visualised in real time through a web based application. The open-source software framework is flexible, inter-operable, and tailored to the client’s needs. See the open-source code at: github.com/fjelltopp

 

 

Research Support for WHO Ukraine |  Read the WHO Ukraine Case Study here.  Provision of technical support and data analysis for a country-wide survey of Trauma Emergency Medical Services with the help of Open Data Kit and Python based data analysis techniques.  Fjelltopp also contributed to the write up of multiple reports published by the WHO. 

 

 

Sitefinity Web Development for WHO Geneva | We have provided web development for WHO HIV in Geneva and the global WHO website. A collection of interactive pages were developed to publish global data relating to HIV self testing.

 

 

Internal process & management consulting for WHO Kazakhstan | We have worked with WHO Kazakhstan to review their internal processes and improve their remote working patterns during the COVID-19 crisis.  We have built integrations between their project management and communication tools, provided best practises on the tools’ use, and offered direct support to the WR.  This provided us with deeper insight into WHO management, structure and governance.

 

 

Infrastructure Support for WHO Eastern Mediterranean Regional Office (EMRO) | Designing a data management workflow and real time dashboards for the Emergency Operations Centre in the EMRO regional office of the WHO. This includes coordinating data from events and signals of public health importance with operational data on task assignments and meeting activity. From a technical perspective the dashboards were implemented in Microsoft PowerBI powered by an SQL Server database with various custom data management processes including integration with WebEOC.

 

 

Technical capacity building | We believe in the power of open source; no license fees, easy collaboration, and open innovation. But we have found that many partners in low and middle income countries have limited experience working with popular open source technologies such as Linux, Python and Docker. We are always looking for ways to partner with local engineers and grow their capacity to work with open source through training, mentorship and collaboration.

 

 

Technology | We pick up new technologies quickly, but have particular experience in working with: Open Data Kit, DHIS2, OpenMRS, CKAN Superset, Microsoft PowerBI, Linux, Python, Java, Docker, PostgreSQL, Amazon Web Services, NGINX, Javascript, and HTML/CSS.

 

 

Award Winning | During our first year of trading we delivered services totalling $200,000 to new clients in the Ukraine, Madagascar, Jordan, Central African Republic, Egypt, Switzerland and Finland, some of which was won by competitive tender. In recognition of this Fjelltopp Ltd was selected as best "Newcomer to International Trade" at the International Trade Club awards.
