What do they do

Meningitis Research Foundation developed a dashboard (the Meningitis Progress Tracker) that brings meningitis estimates and data together in one place for the first time. Visualising these estimates side by side revealed that meningitis and neonatal sepsis combined are leading infectious killers of children under five. The progress tracker has now been selected to officially monitor progress against the World Health Organization’s targets in their roadmap to defeat meningitis by 2030.

How we helped

We built on an already existing workbook by improving performance, adopting a more visually effective colour scheme and adding in clearer ‘How to read’ documentation to the dashboard. We also created a quicker and easier solution to acquiring the new weekly data that drives a dashboard.
