Carlo, Lorena; Kaonga, Nadi; Kodie, Richmond; Velez, Olivia; Kanter, Andrew S.

We performed a qualitative study (n=39) mapping the health information needs of stakeholders involved with malaria prevention and treatment in rural Ghana as part of a larger effort to develop integrated, scalable eHealth tools. Initial results can be categorized into four areas: health care delivery, data quality, technical problems and workforce-related problems. This comprehensive review of information challenges in one area identifies fertile ground for potential improvement using health information technology.
