Impact of the Coronavirus Pandemic on Malaria Control in Zimbabwe

In an effort to contribute to the global research efforts into COVID-19, a team based at SADTAP Health Research Institute in Zimbabwe are leading a study to determine the impact of COVID-19 on malaria control programmes. The team developed the protocol and associated study documentation to fit the nature and resources of their setting and received ethical approval from their local review boards before undertaking the study in 100 health facilities.

What is vital at this time, is to provide key documentation and study materials that can be accessed and used to support high-quality, rapid implementation of these critical COVID-19 studies in various settings. We know the true power of active sharing and the impact it can have to raise standards and speed up research.

Therefore, the team in Zimbabwe have generously provided access to the SOP's and documentation they have developed to support the study at their sites.

The team wish to acknowledge their key collaborators; Dr Mufaro Kanyangarara at the University of South Carolina for funding the study, and the Ministry of Health and Child Care in Zimbabwe for their permission to use the routine malaria data and to conduct the study in the nominated health facilities.
