From March 18-22, 2024, the Shinda Malaria program, funded by the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) and implemented by the Ifakara Health Institute and partners, including the National Malaria Control Program (NMCP), is hosting a 5-day workshop in Morogoro region.

The aim is improving how key health systems share data for improved decision making and interventions, these include the Case Management Information System (CMIS), District Health Information System 2 (DHIS2), and the electronic Integrated Disease Surveillance and Response system (eIDSR).

The gathering was also aimed at crafting an integration framework for seamless operations, and outlining technical guidelines for implementation.

The Shinda Malaria project is empowering the Government of Tanzania’s malaria prevention endeavors through enhanced data collection and analysis, facilitating informed resource allocation, and ultimately, saving more lives.

On the first day of the meeting, the Information and communication technologies (ICT) Director from NMCP, Silvanus Ilomo, remarked the gathering as an important step towards improved access of data.
