The Division of Malaria Control (DOMC) in Kenya has been in the process of operationalizing the WHO Manual for Surveillance in endemic settings. The DOMC has so far realized the adoption of common indicators and dashboards for malaria program monitoring. With the aim of determining whether the data required for malaria surveillance indicators exists at the national, sub-national (district and health facility) level a series of international and national consultative workshops were held, a gap analysis of the existing systems carried out and a pilot of malaria surveillance data collection tool conducted in selected districts.
In this regard, the DOMC has developed the curriculum to train health workers on how to carry out an effective malaria surveillance at all service levels in the awareness that surveillance systems consists of tools procedures, people and structures which are required to generate information for planning, monitoring and evaluating malaria programs.
