Program for Resistance, Immunology, Surveillance, and Modeling of Malaria in Uganda (PRISM)

-
Investigator: Matthew G. Dorsey, MD
Sponsor: NIH National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease

Location(s): Uganda

Description

The overall goal of the Uganda ICEMR will be to perform comprehensive surveillance studies to improve understanding of malaria and measure the impact of population-level control interventions.  Studies will be conducted in six sentinel sites, ranging from areas of relatively low transmission intensity to areas with some of the highest transmission intensities recorded in the world.  Uganda provides an ideal environment for this program as malaria covers a wide range of epidemiological settings in the country. Researchers hope to use the varied settings to evaluate intervention strategies and assess optimal control methods.

Associated sites for the Uganda ICEMR: Kabale District, Mubende District, Apac District, Kanungu District, Jinja District, Tororo District
