Real-time Epidemiological Surveillance in Mali: Data Quality for Good Decision Making to Prevent and Respond to Epidemics


From the beginning of the response to the Ebola epidemic in Mali in 2014, the country’s Ministry of Public Health and Hygiene has prioritized strengthening the reporting system of key diseases that have the potential to become epidemics.

In 2016, MEASURE Evaluation, funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in collaboration with the National Directorate of Health (DNS), and the Division of Disease Prevention and Control in the Ministry of Health, set up real-time epidemiological surveillance and reporting in DHIS 2 for better evidence-informed decision making. This document highlights the responses to this situation as well as results. JSI, MEASURE Evaluation, 2018.
