Our team is now in Botswana to start work with the Ministry of Health and Wellness and the National Malaria Program (NMP) to enhance and expand the available data in Botswana for use in malaria interventions, such as the type/use of buildings, building and roofing materials, and road conditions. This will be done by field surveying in six malaria endemic areas in Botswana: Chobe, Bobirwa, Boteti, Tutume, Okavango, and Ngami. This fits into three related projects that HOT has been working on around malaria elimination.
