Modelling to support strategic planning in Mainland Tanzania

This project describes the use of mathematical modelling for planning of malaria intervention strategies embedded within the long-term collaboration between the Health Intervention Unit’s NETCELL project and the Infectious Disease Modelling Unit at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute and the National Malaria Control Programme in Tanzania and other partners.

School Malaria Parasitaemia Survey

During my master studies I spent 6 months in Tanzania to support data collection and analysis of the school survey, conducted by the National Malaria Control Programme.
