This paper describes the approaches used to scale up vector control in Malawi, the challenges encountered, the lessons learnt from this experience, and how these lessons have informed vector control efforts. A single intervention-based approach for vector control may have suboptimal impact. Well-coordinated integrated vector management may offer greater benefits. A resistance management plan is essential for effective and sustainable vector control.
