Improving Mass Drug Administration (MDA) Data Quality with Electronic Tally Counters

Aleta Williams of FHI Partners LLC in the U.S. will design, build, and test a mobile, digital tally counter for community drug distributors to accurately record data during mass drug administration campaigns for neglected tropical diseases in rural and deprived communities. Currently, these data are generally captured on paper, which is inefficient, prone to errors, and difficult to share. They will use a human-centered design approach to produce a prototype tally counter that can record essential information including GPS coordinates during campaigns, and test their performance and acceptability with stakeholders and end-users.
