Technical Assistance in Implementing Village-level Data Collection and Surveillance:
We are now collecting malaria data at the village level to contribute to the National Malaria Elimination Programme. The mapping of communities is critical to this program’s strong disease surveillance and intervention, with which we are closely collaborating. Recently, we organized field activities to instruct health care professionals on how to transmit data via USSD and SMS. Data in real-time is crucial for combating malaria. Previously, monitoring and planning were hindered by the program’s reliance on monthly accumulated data.
