The primary aim of this assessment is to evaluate current approaches to malaria surveillance in Myanmar and to provide a set of practical and feasible recommendations to further strengthen the surveillance system in the short to medium term. The assessment focuses on the surveillance of malaria cases (as distinct from more general surveillance to support monitoring and evaluation) and, more specifically, on instruments and systems to collect, collate, report and analyse malaria data as a basis for informing malaria control policy and practice.
This report describes the flow (and use) of information from volunteers and government health staff at all levels of the system to the central level and makes a number of detailed recommendations to improve the system and to address some of the bottlenecks and issues identified.
