Role of mass drug administration in elimination of Plasmodium falciparum malaria: a consensus modelling study

This study used consensus modeling to understand how to optimize the effects of mass drug administration in areas with low malaria transmission.

Estimating the most efficient allocation of interventions to achieve reductions in Plasmodium falciparum malaria burden and transmission in Africa: a modelling study

Reducing the burden of malaria is a global priority, but financial constraints mean that available resources must be allocated rationally to maximise their effect. [This study] aimed to develop a model to estimate the most efficient (ie, minimum cost) ordering of interventions to reduce malaria burden and transmission. [It] also aimed to estimate the efficiency of different spatial scales of implementation.

Potential for reduction of burden and local elimination of malaria by reducing Plasmodium falciparum malaria transmission: a mathematical modelling study

This study used a mathematical model of the transmission of Plasmodium falciparum malaria to explore the potential effect on case incidence and malaria mortality rates from 2015 to 2030 of five different intervention scenarios. These findings show that decreases in malaria transmission and burden can be accelerated over the next 15 years if the coverage of key interventions is increased.

Malaria morbidity and mortality in Ebola-affected countries caused by decreased health-care capacity, and the potential effect of mitigation strategies: a modelling analysis

The Ebola epidemic in West Africa weakened health systems, threatening the gains in malaria control achieved over the past decade. This article quantified this additional indirect burden of Ebola.
