Moving towards malaria elimination: developing innovative tools for malaria surveillance in Cambodia

In collaboration with the national malaria control programme in Cambodia (CNM), Malaria Consortium developed a diverse set of tools to improve malaria surveillance and to provide the information needed by national and district staff to manage the national malaria programme, respond to malaria outbreaks and individual cases and monitor in real-time the levels of critical malaria supplies at health facilities.

The surveillance tools developed were a mix of routine reporting systems using eHealth and mobile phone-based (mHealth) solutions that would enable resource constrained environments to provide real-time data for immediate action. This learning paper documents the lessons learned in developing an appropriate tool and the specific considerations in the implementation of mHealth solutions.
