CCSP Common Metadata

On August 10, 2012 we held a cervical cancer screening forum in Eldoret Kenya to discussion the current state and future of cervical cancer screening and treatment programs.  This included representatives from health organizations in Kenya, Tanzania, and Uganda.  Part of this meeting included starting a metadata set for collecting data across sites to pool for research purposes.  The goal was to start with a simple common dataset, so that even if sites are collecting more, less, or different data, they should be able to transform it to fit this model.

Attached below is the current version of the metadata specification in pdf format for viewing, and the in progress document in docx for editing.
