Mobile Technology for Malaria Elimination: Evaluation of a Mobile Application Version of a Disease Surveillance and Risk Monitoring (DiSARM) Platform. Mentored by Dr. Hugh Sturrock
DiSARM is a unique surveillance and decision support platform, designed to allow malaria control programs to perform complex spatial and mathematical analyses and interact with data in an intuitive way to help inform decision-making. Developed initially for malaria by the Malaria Elimination Initiative in the Global Health Group at the University of California, San Francisco, DiSARM is being implemented in Swaziland and Zimbabwe with the support of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Google Earth Engine, and the Clinton Health Access Initiative.
