CHISU is supporting Thailand's Ministry of Public Health to process documentation for malaria elimination certification and associated tasks; develop an action plan to link the malaria online system with other priority information systems; improve the availability, quality, and timeliness of malaria data; and strengthen the review and analysis of malaria data at the national and provincial levels.

Over the last decade, Thailand has achieved a 91 percent decrease in malaria incidence through efforts led by the country’s Ministry of Public Health’s (MOPH) Division of Vector Borne Diseases (DVBD). Part of these efforts was the introduction of Malaria Online (a web-based Tableau business intelligence platform) as the country’s malaria information system (MIS).

Despite Thailand’s progress toward malaria elimination, some parts of the country have seen new cases despite seeing no new cases in previous years. Malaria case detection, response, and reporting are also challenging because cases are very mobile, concentrated at the country’s borders, and in geographically remote areas.
