eHealth Africa is an Nigeria based NGO that is at the center of polio eradication in Northern Nigeria, and the ebola response in West-Africa. It's focused on improving healthcare by creating effective ways to implement reliable health information management systems, and has a strong emphasis on utilizing GIS and geospatial solutions.

With the aim of boosting the Nigeria OSM community, this presentation will showcase what eHealth Africa has achieved so far using OSM data and what it contributed back to the project, like mapping thousands of highways and buildings with the HOT Tasking Manager, and the release of different kinds of data to be imported, like administrative boundaries, place names, residential areas, health facilities, water bodies, and how these data was collected.
