Abstract

Implementing electronic data collection for health research can be challenging in resource-limited settings, where electricity, Internet access, and study staff with computer training may be limited. Our team has established a successful research data infrastructure using the REDCap software at three HIV clinics and one coordinating center in Cameroon. We describe our recommended network architecture and guidance for study data teams working in similar settings.
