The LINK programme collates extensive sets of prevalence data and develops these into epidemiologic and intervention profiles to guide malaria control in endemic countries.
Engagement with National Malaria Programmes is a cornerstone of LINK, as we seek to build strong collaborations and national ownership of data and research which is vital for facilitating a culture of data use.
LINK aims to work with partners to identify gaps in available data and knowledge and address challenges that might impede the ability of NMCPs to generate, organise and utilise malaria data.
