Background: Resoponsive surveillance systems are needed in malaria control programs toward elimination programs especially in rapid and realtime reporting. But in many remote areas where malaria is a major health problem does not have a model of malaria surveillance system. The model of malaria surveillance system implemented in South Halmahera Districtof  Indonesia  is able to deliver reports in realtime and overcome various limitations in the implementation of malaria surveillance called Lacak Malaria

Methods: To find out that Lacak Malaria meet the ideal model of surveillance system in remote areas, a review / review is conducted to provide comparison with the existing surveillance system. Lacak Malaria developed by Malaria Center of  South Halmahera   has been going well since October 2015 to the present in South Halmahera. Lacak Malaria using mobile phones in the rapid reporting of malaria cases in realtime.

Result: Lacak Malaria fulfills the element of malaria surveillance needed by malaria program toward elimination ie reporting in realtime and based on individual data. Lacak Malaria also meets the ideal element of the malaria surveillance system that all levels of health services (puskesmas, pustu, polindes and village health workers) report malaria cases directly to the Lacak Malaria database system. Lacak Malaria meets the essential essential data requirements required in the elimination program at the Case Detection stage but has not yet settled on the Case investigation and intervention / response phase. Lacak Malaria achievement as Champion WSIS Prizes 2018.

Conclusions: Lacak Malaria is a relevant malaria surveillance model to be applied in remote areas with limited internet communication infrastructure and the need to develop Lacak Malaria to meet all the essential data needs of the Case investigation and response phase.
