Free trial subscription to Transform® for World Malaria Day

Despite many advances in treatments and diagnostics in recent years, malaria continues to be one of the world’s most significant and deadly public health challenges.

There were an estimated 627,000 malaria deaths and 241 million malaria cases in 2020, and experts fear the situation could get worse.

In 2020 the World Health Organisation warned that disruption from the Covid-19 pandemic could double the number of malaria deaths in sub-Saharan Africa.

This week, World Malaria Day was on April 25, and was marked under the theme “Harness innovation to reduce the malaria disease burden and save lives.”

There are many innovations helping to reduce the burden of malaria, but one tool has the power to make a huge difference – DATA.

We believe that data is the key to controlling and ultimately eradicating malaria.

There are already several affordable and rapid diagnostic tests based on lateral flow technology on the market.

But if we could use a smartphone camera and app system like Transform® to capture the results of these tests at the source, along with associated patient information and geographical location, the data could be saved securely in the cloud and analysed on a desktop dashboard system.

This cost-effective system would allow governments and health authorities to have a real-time, constantly updated picture of malaria outbreaks, allowing them to better allocate resources and ultimately helping to stop the spread of the disease.

To mark World Malaria Day, we’re offering malaria testing companies a free trial subscription to our Transform® platform. This offer is also open to agencies pivotal in the detection , management and control of infectious diseases such as FIND, WHO, CDC and The Gates Foundation.

Transform® is a ready-to-go SaaS solution with app, dashboards and secure cloud storage – it’s real-time digital reporting made easy.

If you have a malaria test and would like a free trial subscription to Transform®, get in touch.
