|Project Rationale and Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy|
|Impact||Improved targeted malaria and dengue surveillance and control programs for mobile populations in Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand.|
|Description of Outcome||Improved understanding of the impact of human mobility on malaria prevalence and dengue incidence in Cambodia, Myanmar and Thailand.|
|Progress Toward Outcome||This project supports DMCs in strengthening ICT surveillance tools and their standard-based and interoperable integration in health information systems. This is an important part of ehealth, which is one of the business lines of ADB's Operational Plan for Health. We anticipate that opportunities will arise from the dialogue with DMCs through this project to engage more in HIS and ehealth strengthening through ADB projects.The project also supports innovative knowledge management, working with Centers of Excellence.The project is closely linked with ADB's regional cooperation work on public goods in health, namely activities under the regional malaria and other communicable diseases threats trust fund.|
|Description of Project Outputs||
GIS-based visualization system of human mobility data established and methodology evaluated.
Prevalence and incidence data of Malaria and Dengue analyzed.
Policy recommendations for targeting mobile populations in malaria and dengue surveillance and control programs communicated to the Ministry of Health and other stakeholders.
Capacity of application of GIS-based visualization developed
|Status of Implementation Progress (Outputs, Activities, and Issues)||1. The team has conducted capacity development on GIS enabled malaria information system management and general health information system management. The team has also supported national malaria programs in standardizing data entries into malaria information systems.The team was able to establish formal support from Ministries of Post and Telecommunication. In Thailand and Myanmar the team has access to Call Data Records through established relationships with mobile phone providers. Access to call data record was secured in Myanmar via Telenor and in Cambodia via Smart. The CDR will be analyzed in Q1 and 2 in 2017 based on new international best practices in CDR analytics (data does not leave the mobile phone provider). 2. Ongoing. Data on malaria and dengue incidence n mobile population is collected via travel surveys.3. Recommendations for targeting mobile populations in malaria and dengue surveillance and control programs communicated to Ministries of Health are initiated.4. Capacity development workshops were held, partnership with ESRI to provide GIS software to participating DMCs was established, regional GIS training lab was established. Demand for similar training was expressed by MoH Viet Nam, however, Viet Nam is not included in this TA.|
