Abstract This practitioner report describes a recent example of the growing opportunities between humanitarian health organizations and the crisis mapping community. The World Health Organization (WHO) partnered with volunteer crisis mappers to quickly collect information and map over 600 health facilities after the 2011 Libya Crisis. This new collaboration between WHO staff, volunteers, technologists, GIS specialists, health cluster partners and a researcher helped provide health and geographic information to support the planning phases of an in-depth countrywide health facility assessment. Outcomes of this collaboration will also aid recovery and reconstructions efforts for the Libyan health system. © 2012 ISCRAM.
