The 35 malaria-eliminating countries have set, or are realistically considering, the objective of freeing themselves of malaria within the next decade or two. These countries, shown in purple and blue, are from two categories:
- A country that has formally declared a national, evidence-based elimination goal, has assessed its feasibility, and has embarked on a malaria elimination strategy.
- A country that is strongly considering an evidence-based national elimination goal, and that has already made substantial progress in spatially progressive elimination (e.g., by eliminating malaria from specific islands, provinces, or geographic areas) and in greatly reducing malaria nationwide.
