Progress towards subnational elimination in the Philippines

The Philippines’ case study underscores the success of the national elimination strategy, which includes a provincial-level malaria-free certification effort. By 2013, one third of the provinces in the Philippines achieved malaria elimination, and the entire country aims to become malaria free by 2020. The case study reviews the key interventions that led to success, such as strong surveillance, prompt treatment of malaria cases, and targeted vector control.
