Data visualisation

September 2017

The following resource was originally developed for a research uptake workshop held at the Kemri Wellcome Trust Research Programme, Kenya from 12–14 September 2017. The workshop covered the stages of developing a research uptake strategy, steps to writing a policy brief, an introduction to data visualisation and tips for using social media for research uptake.

A second workshop held in Bangkok with colleagues from the International Health Policy Program, led to the development of additional resources about developing a digital communications strategy, writing for the web and using photos.

The presentation will:

  • Introduce data visualisation and demonstrate its value for research uptake and communications
  • Compare different types of chart
  • Share design tips for a visualisation
  • Explore online data visualisation tools
