Title of the Project: Control of Malaria through Integrated Information Technology Tools in Arunachal Pradesh, India
Sponsor of the Project: DST, Govt. of India
Period/Budget: 2004 to 2006 / Rs.19,60,800/-
Patent / Copyright: File No.SW3048/2006 dated 24/04/2006
Objective of the Project:
  • Construction of systematic database on the prevalence of malaria in Arunachal Pradesh.
  • Build up a correlation between the data sets of various parameters to develop predictions on outbreak of disease.
  • Utilization of data mining tools for predicting the outbreak of malaria in the state.
  • Customization of software which is feasible to operate in the field to the concerned officials
Need for the Project The Problem:
Since there are several pitfalls in the existing control programs, it is necessary to bridge the communication and information gap between the administrators and the endemic zones of malaria for assessing the situation from time to time through Information Technology tools. This will help in taking the right decisions at right time and facilitates the control measures as quickly as possible.  This will help in taking the right decisions and pass it on through quick mode of transport from the nodal point. In spite of the anti larval and anti adult operations to control malaria in North-East region, the mortality due to the dreaded disease is posing a major problem in public health.  Hence, the present study is proposed mainly focusing on utilization of Information Technology tools for developing the systematic database on vector complexity and data mining, which predicts the outbreak of the malaria.
Deliverables of the Project - The Solution: Database on Malaria.
Salient features of the Project:
  • User-friendly data entry screens
  • Checklists for each data entry form that will be helpful in data verification
  • All the checklists and reports were web designed and hence can be accessed in the local area network (LAN)
  • Literature collection on about 164 articles with related hyperlinks wherever available.
  • Provision to add more states and districts
  • Animated images were provided on first screen and data entry screens
System Requirements:
  • Any personal computer with Microsoft 2000/ XP operating system
  • Internet Information Service (IIS)
  • Microsoft Office 2000/ XP
