A framework for malaria elimination
The Global Malaria Programme has developed a number of tools to support the dissemination, adoption and implementation of this policy guidance by national malaria control programmes. These include key points on the guidance and a Q&A.
The malaria landscape has changed significantly in the last decade. Funding has increased, life-saving tools have been scaled up, burden has decreased and more countries are pursuing elimination.
This updated 2017 framework provides guidance on the tools, activities and strategies required to achieve malaria elimination and prevent re-establishment of transmission in countries, regardless of where they lie across the spectrum of transmission intensity. It is intended to inform national malaria elimination strategic plans and should be adapted to local contexts.
This new framework supersedes the 2007 field manual for malaria elimination in low and moderate endemic countries.
