Socio-demographic data are collected twice a year. Current malaria work focuses on phase IV studies for antimalarials and on determinants of fine-scale variation of pathogen transmission risk, to inform malaria elimination strategies.
The IHDSS is also used to describe the epidemiology and health system aspects of maternal, neonatal and child health and for intervention trials at individual and health systems levels. More recently, IHDSS researchers have studied epidemiology, health-seeking and national programme effectiveness for chronic health problems of adults and older people, including for HIV, tuberculosis and non-communicable diseases.
A focus on understanding vulnerability and designing methods to enhance equity in access to services are cross-cutting themes in our work.
Our experience in the malaria and child health fields demonstrates capacity to translate knowledge into action and to influence policy at district, national and international levels, and has brought notable health improvements to the HDSS area and beyond. In the s, malaria transmission in the Kilombero valley was among the highest in subSaharan Africa, with an average entomological inoculation rate of infectious bites per person per year. A number of large-scale field intervention trials, epidemiological studies and impact evaluations for malaria followed.
Current malaria work in humans focuses on Phase IV studies, providing effectiveness and safety data for antimalarials. The area of the rural Ifakara HDSS is also home to one of the largest entomological and environmental research programmes in Africa, providing detailed information on vector ecology and behaviour.
