Malaria remains the largest public health problem in Mozambique, accounting for 29 percent of all hospital deaths and 42 percent of deaths among children under five. Malaria control and elimination is particularly complex due to the varied transmission dynamics and endemicity across the country. To activate responses that are relevant to local needs, it is essential to have a comprehensive malaria information and surveillance system that collects key eco-epidemiological data to regularly update malaria transmission stratification and to inform the deployment of interventions.
This presentation, delivered at the 67th annual meeting of the American Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene, shares findings from Mozambique's 2018 national comprehensive surveillance assessment.
