Mozambique has the fourth-highest malaria burden globally. Surveillance helps to generate data that can be used to assess the effectiveness of malaria control strategies. Genomic data — the DNA data of organisms — constitute an important addition to routine surveillance; however, genomic capacities remain low in Africa, and in Mozambique in particular. This project seeks to support decision-making related to malaria control and elimination by monitoring the genetic markers of the Plasmodium falciparum parasite that indicate resistance to antimalarial drugs and diagnostics.
