To mark World Malaria Day, IDDO Director Professor Philippe Guérin explains the need to maintain our focus on the elimination of malaria.
The Infectious Diseases Data Observatory brings together members of the global infectious disease community to collaborate in the generation, analysis and application of data to improve outcomes for patients. IDDO’s vision is for effective control and treatment of infectious diseases affecting the most vulnerable populations.
IDDO assembles clinical, laboratory and epidemiological data on a collaborative platform to be shared with the research and humanitarian communities. The data is analysed to generate reliable evidence and innovative resources that enable a research-driven response to the major challenges of emerging and neglected infections. Focus areas include Ebola, malaria, visceral leishmaniasis and medicine quality.
