Mobile and migrant populations and malaria information systems
AbstractAll countries of the Greater Mekong Subregion are engaged in operations leading to malaria elimination and prevention of its reintroduction within regional malaria time-boundelinimination goals. This document provides current country experiences gained, sofar, to improve access by mobile and migrant populations to malaria services and how to connect those services with basic information needed that improves surveillance and response mechanisms to mitigate epidemics, to detect new active malaria foci or o quickly monitor and respond to multidrug resistant parasite strains. This effort is recognized to be not only the responsbility of respective ministries of health but is rather multisectoral, engaing almost all ministeries, local politicians, leaders and communities where mobile and migrant populations are living.
