Yazoume Ye, ICF/Measure Malaria
Yazoume provided the update on the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene Surveillance Supplement Series. He reminded participants of the objective of the Journal Supplement Series, with reference to how since 2015 countries have been streamlining malaria surveillance as core intervention in line with WHO recommendations and guidelines. He noted that there are several publications related to malaria surveillance in different peer-reviewed journals— but not they are not consolidated. Yazoume underpinned the fact that the proposed journal supplements aim to provide a one-stop shop on how malaria surveillance is being implemented as a core intervention—practical cases, progress, challenges, and lessons learned. He elaborated on the scope of the Supplement Series that consist of three journal supplements (1, 2, and 3).
