What We Do

Using Data to Protect Refugee Health

UNHCR uses an online platform called Twine to manage and analyse public health data collected in refugee operations.

Data is collected using a number of different tools, which cover a range of sectors and operational settings. UNHCR and partners select the most appropriate combination of tools in Twine to design, monitor and evaluate their public health programmes.

The aim is to improve the health status of people of concern to UNHCR, through evidence-based policy formulation, improved management of health programmes and, ultimately, direct actions that improve refugee health.

The graphic below illustrates the tools that are currently supported in Twine. Visit the site and learn more.

If you have any questions or require further information on Twine, please contact us.
