Abstract

The functioning electronic databases for fast and reliable disease early warning and response networks (EWARN) have been found very effective in early detection, confirmation and response to disease outbreaks but launching the implementation of such electronic systems is always time consuming due to resource constraints and other limitations during crises. Thus application of data analytical approaches can serve as reliable alternative for electronic database system during the initial launching phase that facilitate monitoring of health situation without any delay during humanitarian crises. Furthermore, this approach can help in improving overall health information management capacities and capabilities of resource poor countries.
