Data use is central to communicating the effect of the program and it is also very useful for improving decision making to enhance the achievement of program goals.

Data visualization, i.e. use of graphics, plots, dots, lines, or bars information graphics and another format, is a very effective and efficient method of communicating results to diverse stakeholders as it presents data in a format which helps decision-makers and other users to quickly and properly understand the data. This allows the audience to make sound decisions.

This will require that the information presented must be up to date and readily available in a format that is user-friendly, easily accessible and consistently available (some of the issues to be addressed by the GF RSSH grant).

When finalized, the grant use products will be configured into an interactive billboard to showcase the grants’ performance over time, using a
data visualization approach.
