WHO | ESPEN Collect


ESPEN Collect is a free mobile data collection tool for the national programs (Ministry of Health: MoH), Neglected Tropical Disease related NGOs, partners… in World Health Organization's African region.

ESPEN Collect is simple to use and train. Launched in August 2018, it is based on ODK (Open Data Kit) architecture.

Designed to collect data for the four Neglected Tropical Diseases responsive to Preventive Chemotherapy (PC-NTDs):

  • Lymphatic Filariasis (LF)
  • Onchocerciasis (Oncho)
  • Schistosomiasis (SCH)
  • Soil-transmitted Helminthiasis (STH)

ESPEN Collect currently supports disease-specific surveys that collect data to populate the JAP (Joint Application Package), as well as non-disease specific Coverage surveys.
