Child Health and Mortality Prevention Surveillance (CHAMPS)

The CHAMPS Network uses innovative approaches to generate and share knowledge that improves understanding and prevention of child mortality. ICAP joined CHAMPS Sierra Leone in 2018 to support laboratory, diagnostics, informatics, and data systems to improve child health and mortality. ICAP’s laboratory and diagnostic support included strengthening laboratory and pathology capacity for postmortem specimen collection and testing. Testing was used in the Determination of Cause of Death (DeCoDe) panel activities in children under five years. ICAP’s informatics support included technical assistance for database development, hosting, maintenance, and troubleshooting, as well as data collection and management.
