The Database taskforce is developing a joint malaria database that pulls together high-quality information and data from RBM partners to facilitate malaria monitoring, evaluation, and advocacy worldwide. Its purpose is to provide a consistent, accurate and reliable source of malaria-related data for those working in malaria, including journalists, authors, advocates, NMCP managers, program planners, researchers and donors. The database will draw on strengths in data collection/reporting of RBM partners, reduce duplicative data collection/ management and dissemination by partners, increase transparency and accountability, and provide a single portal, with at-a-glance content as well as ability to delve deeper to serve variety of users.
