Abstract

The need for ubiquitous information and knowledge is currently described as an issue by African Governments. To this end, the Gabonese government has decided to set up a program called E-health. Admittedly, experiences and strategies in terms of data infrastructures and open data platforms exist; but the fact remains that their contents are still little known and sometimes unsuitable for exploitation within the framework of the country’s development policies. With this article, we are proposing a generic methodological approach that allows the construction of a virtual observatory dedicated to piloting health data. The concept of an observatory is particularly declined through the functionalities it offers. Our approach involves the definition of a global architecture integrating the Gabonese specificities. Such a virtual observatory would facilitate decision-making by public authorities, development partners and researchers, in the context of the implementation of Gabon’s development policies and e-government.
