Field of knowledge Indicators
Drug resistance Halotype, mutation type, molecular type resistance, drug type, marker, d28 efficacy
Insecticide resistance Insecticide class, resistance mechanism
Intervention Vector control strategies (larval control, IRS), treatment (ACT, intermittent preventive treatment), personal protection (ITN)
Entomology Dvs occurrence, vector occurrence, vector bionomics, reproductive number, temperature suitability, entomological inoculation rate, mosquitoes presence, vectorial capacity, phenotype, vector species
Epidemiology In/out patient, death, population at risk, incidence, prevalence, pf/pv parasite rates, g6pd deficiency, sickle cell, duffy negativity, haemoglobin c, clinical burden, population at risk, endemicity, transmission limit, seasonal climatic suitability for malaria transmission, malaria seasonality, relapse incidence, fever cause
Malaria facing strategies/policies Free treatment, collaboration public/private sector, mandatory case reporting, new cases/relapse distinction, active/passive surveillance, case detection techniques (microscopy, rapid diagnostic test)
Geography Landcover, district frontiers, administrative boundaries, schools, hospitals, health services
