Malaria Reporting in Lao PDR
Date: March 2012 — Present
Location: Lao PDR
Technology: Resource Map
With funding from The Global Fund, we began working on a project for the Center for Malaria Parasitology and Entomology of Lao PDR (CMPE) to provide technical assistance in the development of an SMS system for malaria reporting.
The malaria reports consist of critical malaria drug stock information, geographic locations and the number of patient cases from the villages and health centers. The goal of using an SMS-based reporting system is to help the people at various levels within the healthcare system get critical information and alerts from the field, in real time. By having up-to-date information, they can better manage and coordinate their resources and better protect people from the potentially devastating effects of this disease.
