The Federal Government of Nigeria collaborated with MEASURE Evaluation, which is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, to organize the Nigeria Health and Mapping Summit 2011: Enlisting National Mapping Agencies in Improving Health Outcomes. This report is a summary of the conference, which took place at the Reiz Continental Hotel in Abuja October 18-19, 2011. The conference was the first of its kind at the country level in Africa, as it marked the first time government representatives from the health and mapping sectors had met on such inter-ministerial or agency levels to harmonize national efforts to improve health outcomes through more effective leveraging of the National Geospatial Data Infrastructure (NGDI), also known as National Spatial Data Infrastructure or NSDI. The conference also represents a continuation of health and mapping sector collaboration that was launched in April 2009 at the Committee on Development Information, Science and Technology (CODIST) I pre-conference workshop in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
