115 Hotzone Disease Reporting and Information Hotline in Cambodia
The Cambodian CDC, which resides within the country’s Ministry of Health, is responsible for national reporting of disease spread. In January 2016, Tte InSTEDD iLab Southeast Asia, working closely with the Skoll Global Threats Fund and the Cambodia CDC, helped launch a free to the public hotline system that can be accessed by dialing 115 on any phone in Cambodia. Health reports from citizens are marked for verification, follow-up, and analysis. Reports submitted by health centres and community health workers are improving timeliness and accuracy of reports and enhancing investigation into outbreak response and prevention measures. The iLab Southeast Asia continues to support the line as it scales and grows in popularity.
