Odisha State’s Malaria Reduction Success – Role of Information for Action

Presentation identifies the Odisha State in eastern coastal India as a region in the country and world with exceptionally high rates of malaria infection. Odisha, which represents 3% of India’s population was reporting 40% of the nation’s malaria case. The interventions in this state are documented to show the effectiveness of the declining malaria burden  

India, which in 2017 had the fourth highest malaria burden in the world has established a goal to be malaria-free by 2027. India has a 20% decline in cases since implementation of the described interventions.

Malaria: A New Model for Disease Eradication

Defines the current state of impact of malaria. positioning the disease as leading cause of death by disease worldwide. In last 12 years, seven million lives have been saved with a reduction of 60% in fatalities. 

The presentation draws parallels between malaria and polio eradication and estimates a $2 trillion economic benefit through disease eradication. Malaria No More has established a goal and models for disease eradication.

A Semantic Framework to Improve Interoperability of Malaria Surveillance Systems

In 2015, there were 212 million new cases of malaria, and about 429,000 malaria death, worldwide. African countries accounted for almost 90% of global cases of malaria and 92% of malaria deaths. Currently, malaria data are scattered across different countries, laboratories, and organizations in different heterogeneous data formats and repositories. The diversity of access methodologies makes it difficult to retrieve relevant data in a timely manner. Moreover, lack of rich metadata limits the reusability of data and its integration.

Ontology of a Cyberenvironment for Malaria Surveillance

Malaria control programs suffer from weak and fragmented surveillance of the wide range of information required to manage the disease effectively and efficiently. A computational framework to manage, integrate, analyze, and visualize the data resources, a cyberenvironment, can improve the surveillance and the outcomes.

Active Fever Surveillance During Malaria Outbreak in Western Jamaica

Malaria, major leading cause of morbidity and mortality in third world countries has been successfully eliminated from Jamaica since 1965. This, however, is being constantly challenged by lack of sustained vector control activities increased movement of global travellers to and from endemic countries to Jamaica given that the presence of vector “anopheles mosquitoes” that transmit malaria parasites. On December 2006 the first locally transmitted case of malaria was identified in Kingston, the capital city of Jamaica.
