SIP Survey Software
This easy to install software is excellent for the input of each child's age, parasitological data, height, weight and haemaglobin, during a survey.
Simple calculations can then be carried out or the data can be exported to EpiInfo or Excel or other packages for more sophisticated analysis. The software is currently being updated to improve it, but if you are carrying out a survey and would like a copy of the current version, please contact us at email@example.com.
