Based on Few’s dashboard definition, I would argue the WHO local maternity dashboard is an example of a dashboard in need of design improvement. The dashboard highlights metrics related to objectives and is consolidated in one screen. However, thinking of key design principles, the dashboard formatting could be simplified for easier readability, in addition to adjusting the use of color (highlighting just year totals to allow comparison between current/previous years & target, or using only red to highlight months of poor performance; not using blue for the rest of the dashboard background; etc.).
