This manual is designed primarily to assist managers of national malaria programmes and national reference laboratory responsible for quality assurance of malaria microscopy control. The information is also applicable to non-governmental organizations and funding agencies investing in quality management systems for malaria microscopy.

The first edition of the manual was published in 2009 by the WHO Regional Office for the Western Pacific in collaboration with the WHO Global Malaria Programme. Version 2 of the manual has been updated on the basis of a review by experts convened by WHO for a technical consultation held from 26–28 March 2014 in Geneva, Switzerland taking into account the experiences of multiple programmes and technical agencies in the various aspects of quality assurance of malaria microscopy.

The manual will be made available in Spanish soon.
