Cambodia Malaria Surveillance System

Web-based application that enables health center staff and village malaria workers to report malaria cases via SMS text alerts to a centralized system.

Date: August 2011– Present
Location: Cambodia
Technology: Malaria Day Zero Alert System + GeoChat + Nuntium

 

In collaboration with The National Center for Parasitology, Entomology and Malaria Control (CNM), CamGSM Co. Ltd (also known as Mobitel) and funded by the Malaria Consortium (MC), the Malaria Day Zero Alert System was implemented in August 2011 as a pilot project in the Kampot,Kampong Cham and Siem Reap provinces of Cambodia.

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 probable, as well as elevated up to the national level where emergency action can be taken if necessary.
