Revising the Thresholds for Malaria Surveillance Guidelines in Kenya

Kenya developed the first edition of its malaria surveillance guidelines in 2023, which outlined surveillance approaches to be implemented across the 26 malaria epidemic-prone (EPR) counties. Because malaria transmission is declining in Kenya, the guidelines recommended revising the calculation of thresholds used to monitor malaria epidemics, which is automated using an application in the District Health Information System 2 (DHIS2). CHISU worked with the Division of Health Informatics and University of Nairobi Health-IT (funded by USAID) to revise the thresholds—allowing for better monitoring of outbreaks in EPR counties.
