Project Brief 2017
Primero (Protection-related Information Management) offers a modern approach to data management which emphasizes user-friendliness, confidentiality and security. To understand the origins of this initiative, please read our project brief.
Security, Confidentiality & Interoperability to promote the rights of children & women
Primero is guided by the Do No Harm, Need to Know, Informed Consent and Best Interests of the Child principles. Data about children and women can be securely and confidentially shared in order to promote their well being and access to services. Role based access ensures that only those who need to know have access to sensitive data.
Information Management Standards (see Standard 5)
In order to shape programmes to better prevent and respond to violations committed against children and women, incident monitoring systems must be integrated into humanitarian responses and development programmes. Primero allows these systems to be directly linked to the provision of services, while maintaining confidentiality.
