The team from IgangaMayuge HDSS - a research platform of Makerere University had a scientific visit at the Mbita HDSS - a research site of Nagasaki University Institute of Tropical Medicine (NUITM)-Kenya Medical Research Institute (KEMRI project) in March 2018. The purpose of the visit was to share ideas about population surveillance at the two HDSS sites in Uganda and Kenya. Among the areas discussed was electronic data capture systems and morbidity surveillance using a data linkage system that links electronic health records at a health facility and the population data collected through already existing HDSS routine surveillance.
