Location(s): Swaziland


Swaziland has effectively reduced the number of reported malaria cases by 98% between 2000 and 2011 and is on the verge of eliminating malaria. The government aims to have zero local malaria cases in 2015. An important tool in elimination settings is risk mapping. To prepare the implementation and introduction of a cloud-based Disease Surveillance And Risk Mapping (DiSARM) platform for malaria surveillance in Swaziland, current malaria surveillance data processing was evaluated.
