Supporting Life trial is getting underway in Malawi!

support-life-mapAfter nearly 5 years of development and preparation, the Supporting Life trial is about to get underway in Malawi. This is an international study, with partners from multiple universities, including Matthew Thompson and Victoria Hardy from our department. It measures the effectiveness of a smart phone to support village health care workers’ diagnosis and treatment of children under 5 yr with acute illness. This map shows the village clinics that our data collectors will be visiting regularly over the duration of the trial in northern Malawi Read more about the project here.
