Mozambique: Using Geographic Information Systems to Improve Surveillance of Infectious Diseases

A project aimed at developing capabilities in data management, analysis, and mapping within the Department of Health Services in the Ministry of Health has focused so far on training personnel in basic surveillance techniques, gathering and organizing data, defining data collection protocols and database structures, and investigating patterns of malaria occurrence in the capital city, Maputo.

Nepal: Strengthening the Vector-Borne Disease Research and Training Center

A resident advisor is coordinating a range of activities to increase the surveillance capacity of the Vector-Borne Disease Research and Training Center in Hetauda and to enable it to play a leading role in conducting surveillance and planning interventions for malaria, kala azar, and Japanese encephalitis – not just in Nepal but also in the South Asia region.

Planning, Research, and Outreach for Surveillance Activities

EHP is developing approaches for cross-sectoral surveillance (i.e., the integrated analysis of environmental, epidemiological, demographic, and other data to improve programs for the prevention of malaria and other environmentally related diseases); activities include establishment of a technical working group, preparation of a concept paper, development of partnerships with other organizations, and sharing of lessons learned.
