The National Center for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control (CNM)
The organization: The National Center for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control, formally called National Malaria Centre (CNM), is a specialized institution set up by the Cambodian Ministry of Health, to function as the nodal department responsible for the control of vector borne diseases. This includes investigation, training and supervision of health staff and other interventions. CNM coordinates four main programs; malaria, dengue haemorrhagic fever (DHF), filariasis and schistosomiasis and intestinal parasitic infections.
The relationship: In partnership with the Malaria Consortium and CamGSM Co. Ltd (also known as Mobitel), we developed The Malaria Day Zero Alert System. The Malaria Day Zero Alert System is a web-based application that enables health center staff (HC) and village malaria workers (VMWs) in provincial villages to report malaria cases via SMS text alerts to a centralized system. Once centralized, malaria case reports can be resent to areas where outbreaks are suspected, as well as elevated up to the national level where emergency action can be taken if necessary.
