Beyond Malaria

WWARN provides a platform for analysing data from other diseases. Through the Infection Disease Data Observatory (IDDO), our data collection and management tools, bioinformatics algorithms and visualisation resources are being adapted and transformed to fight other infectious and neglected diseases that pose public health threats around the world. To find out more visit the IDDO website.

Disease maps

Non-malarial febrile illness (NMFI) disease maps present published health literature for causes of NMFI. These maps explore the geographical distribution of key pathogens identified as causing fever-driven illness other than malaria. They help to guide the development of improved algorithms for syndromic management of fever, prioritise diagnostic development, and potentially guide empirical therapy.

Partners

Collaborators from FIND in Geneva, Lao-Oxford-Mahosot Hospital-Wellcome Trust Tropical Medicine Research Unit, the Pasteur Institute of Cambodia, WPROLSHTM/ACT Consortium  and Worldwide Antimalarial Resistance Network (WWARN) reviewed published studies from the Mekong region of Southeast Asia, to record and map the identified major pathogens causing febrile illness in this region.
