Case studies provide a learning opportunity for countries and international partners to learn from the experience, successes, challenges, and failures of current and past elimination efforts. Case studies also provide insight on decisions, interventions, systems, and strategies that countries used in their elimination efforts. Conducting and disseminating case studies on current and past elimination efforts and on innovative solutions to key challenges is a priority for the MEG. The MEG hopes to help countries pursuing elimination make informed, evidence-based decisions on how to move forward in their particular setting. Several case studies are currently underway and will be posted on this site as they come available.
Case studies provide an opportunity for countries and international partners to learn about, and learn from, other countries’ experiences with elimination. By documenting and presenting the successes and failures of current and past elimination efforts, the MEG hopes to create an evolving library on malaria elimination evidence and experience from which others will benefit.
Case studies that are, or will soon be available include:
- Bhutan - Malaria control in Bhutan: a case study of a country embarking on elimination
- Cambodia - Large-scale malaria treatment in the private sector: a case study of the Cambodian experience
- Mauritius - Preventing the reintroduction of malaria in Mauritius: a programmatic and financial assessment
- Morocco - Malaria elimination strategy in Morocco: Plan and elements of evaluation
