Nigeria-malaria RAMP

The first RAMP survey in Nigeria took place in Cross River State during the rainy season in June and July,  2011. Cross River State is a coastal state with salt water swamps, dense tropical forests, and many large rivers.

Volunteers from the Nigerian Red Cross Society were trained as interviewers. All volunteers were educated to at least secondary level. Six teams of volunteers, under the supervision of Nigerian health ministry staff, completed questionaires and uploaded data instantly or at the end of the day when they were back in cell coverage range.

The RAMP results bulletin was available 12 hours after the completion of the final interview and the full survey report was generated and shared with partners three days of the completion of the final questionnaire.
