Eric Diboulo

Senior Technical Advisor, Malaria Surveillance, Monitoring and Evaluation and Research
Eric is an epidemiologist with more than 15 years of experience monitoring and evaluating malaria interventions.

Eric (Eng.D., MSc, MSc, Ph.D.) is an experienced epidemiologist and biostatistician with more than 15 years of experience in malaria research, and surveillance, monitoring, and evaluation (SME). He is in charge of the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) Measure Malaria activities in Cameroon.

Eric served as a facilitator in malaria monitoring and evaluation training workshops; he has trained over 100 health professionals in malaria SME. He also led several studies, including therapeutic efficacy studies of antimalarial drugs, malaria indicator survey data, and World Health Organization vaccination coverage cluster survey data.

Eric was the malaria SME technical advisor responsible for leading the Monitoring and Evaluation to Assess and Use Results Evaluation (MEASURE). He worked with the PMI Measure Malaria activities in Liberia, where he provided direct technical assistance to strengthen monitoring and evaluation (M&E) capacity for malaria data collection, reporting, analysis, and use.

Eric published a book, several peer-reviewed articles in journals, and has presented at various national and international meetings and conferences. His Ph.D. dissertation was titled “Developing Bayesian Spatio-Temporal Models to Assess the Relation Between Malaria Transmission and Mortality in Burkina Faso.”
