Operational strategies of anti-malarial drug campaigns for malaria elimination in Zambia’s southern province: a simulation study

The optimal implementation strategy for mass test and treat or mass drug administration malaria parasite clearance strategies will vary by background level of prevalence, by rate of infections imported to the area, and by ability to operationally achieve high population coverage.

How Effective is Integrated Vector Management Against Malaria and Lymphatic Filariasis Where the Diseases Are Transmitted by the Same Vector?

The opportunity to integrate vector management across multiple vector-borne diseases is particularly plausible for malaria and lymphatic filariasis (LF) control where both diseases are transmitted by the same vector. Integrated management should take into account not only how malaria control can facilitate filariasis elimination, but strike a balance between the high levels of coverage of (multiple) interventions required for malaria with the long duration predicted to be required for filariasis elimination.
