Malaria Day Zero Alert System Pilot Training

As day-3 reporting model has proved to be an effective mechanism for reporting cases by SMS, and in light of the move towards the elimination of malaria in Cambodia, it has been decided to scale up the system day-0 reporting of all Pf cases from VMWs and health facilities. As the number of cases will be higher for day-0 than day-3 and given the probable need for more widespread implementation it has been decided to move to a more robust internet based platform.

Malaria Day Zero Alert System is a web base application with SMS service that enable the health center staff (HC) and village malaria worker (VMW) to send malaria case reporting from the village or health center via SMS to the system and make automatic SMS alert to supervised health center, operational district (OD), Provincial heath department(PHD), National Level or System Administrator. Online system also provide ability to view report, manage users and places, set threshold, send alert to group or individual, and templates message setting. The project is currently being hosted with url
