Determinants of Malaria Program Expenditures during Elimination: Case Study Evidence from Select Provinces in the Philippines

A study aiming to estimate the financial resources used by sub-national malaria programs in different phases during elimination in order to understand what resources are needed to transition from controlling malaria to eliminating it, using the Philippines as a case study.
