Sawadee ka! Thailand is one of the few countries implementing focus investigations to manage villages where malaria transmission persists. This week, Akros staff members are working with the Thai Vector Borne Disease Bureau and partners to design a spatial tool to help track and manage foci and work toward elimination. #Malaria #SpatialIntelligence #PrecisionHealth
Indoor residual spraying is wrapping up in Zambia's Eastern Province! Early every morning during spray season, spray teams line up to review the day's plan based on spatial intelligence provided by the mSpray toolkit. On this day, spray teams tackled spraying in Sinda district, helping villages achieve higher than 90% coverage and sufficiently protecting local residents from malaria for the coming season. @abtassociates @pmivectorlink⠀ In the meantime, spray season is just kicking off in Southern Province. @path_macepa ⠀ #mSpray #SpatialIntelligence #PrecisionHealth #Malaria

Our team is in Eastern Province participating in mobilization this week! Mobilization is the process where the benefits of IRS are explained to communities, each house is given a registration card, and preparations are made. New developments in the mSpray tool mean that it can track mobilization efforts, so district managers planning IRS can confirm on their dashboard whether an area has been mobilized and is ready for spraying. #mSpray #PrecisionPublicHealth #SpatialIntelligence #PrecisionInterventions
