Malaria Technical Assistance in Thailand: Consultancy (Data Entry Clerk)
Level of effort: As soonest to August 30, 2021. 20 Days.
Purpose of Assignment: Provide data entry support to the Division of Vector-Borne Disease (DVBD) to expand data availability in its malaria information system (MIS).
Assignment: RTI International is implementing Inform Asia: United States Agency for International Development’s (USAID’s) Health Research Program. The goal is to support malaria elimination in Thailand by 2024 and in Lao PDR by 2030 through the following three intermediate results (IRs):
The consultant will review technical quantitative data in English and Thai compiled by the DVBD’s laboratory team in an Excel file. The consultant will be trained to read and interpret these data and then input these malaria data in corresponding fields in the web-based MIS by matching patient identification numbers. The consultant will confirm accurate data input, in collaboration with DVBD IT and laboratory teams and Inform Asia’s COP, to ensure that all required malaria data are captured in the MIS with limited errors or duplication. This work will accelerate access to essential datasets that Inform Asia will use to inform future malaria elimination programming in Thailand.
