The central role of national programme management for the achievement of malaria elimination: a cross case-study analysis of nine malaria programmes

Malaria eradication will require adaptive, well-managed malaria programmes that are able to tailor implementation of evidence-based strategies, founded upon strong sub-national surveillance and response, with adequate funding and human resources.

Strategies and approaches to vector control in nine malaria-eliminating countries: a cross-case study analysis

Country experiences in the Eliminating Malaria Case Study Series were reviewed to identify success factors on the road to elimination using a cross-case study analytic approach. Most countries aligned with integrated vector management, all programmes conducted entomological surveillance, and indoor residual spraying (IRS) and bednets were commonly used. There were several examples of severe reductions or halting of IRS coverage and subsequent resurgence of malaria.

Tackling Imported Malaria: An Elimination Endgame

Cross border and regional initiatives can be highly effective when based on an understanding of human and parasite movement. Ultimately, determining the optimal combinations of approaches to address malaria importation will require an evaluation of their impact, cost effectiveness, and operational feasibility.

Information Systems to Support Surveillance for Malaria Elimination

Malaria elimination programs should support the implementation and refinement of information systems to support surveillance and response and ensure political and financial commitment to maintain the systems and the human resources needed to run them. National malaria programs should strive to improve the access and utility of these information systems and establish cross-border data sharing mechanisms through the use of standard indicators for malaria surveillance.
