Approaches for mobile and migrant populations in the context of malaria multi-drug resistance and malaria elimination in the Greater Mekong Subregion

The purpose of this document is to bring together the central concerns related to malaria and population mobility in the GMS, in order to assist countries to identify priorities surrounding population mobility and take action to respond to population mobility. This is intended as a future-oriented document that encourages countries to develop proactive initiatives to respond to emerging mobility trends in the region.

Mobile and migrant populations and malaria information systems

This document provides current country experiences gained to improve access by mobile and migrant populations to malaria services and how to connect those services with basic information needed to improve surveillance and response mechanisms to mitigate epidemics, to detect new active malaria foci or to quickly monitor and respond to multidrug resistant parasite strains.

Decision-tree framework for selecting study methods for malaria interventions in mobile and migrant populations

The objective of this toolkit is to help managers oversee the surveys component of the ERAR surveillance, monitoring and evaluation strategy. It should help managers decide the kind of study that would be most useful for them, based on grant applications to be made or reported, and decisions to be made or problems to be solved.

Vector control and personal protection of migrant and mobile populations in the Greater Mekong subregion: A matrix guidance on the best options and methodologies

Migrant and mobile populations require vector control and personal protection because their labour or other practices may increase their exposure to malaria mosquitos. They are also more likely to have incomplete knowledge of malaria and lower access to preventive measures, and thus require targeted interventions that take into account their specific needs.
