Conquering malaria: enhancing the impact of effective interventions towards elimination in the diverse and changing epidemiology
In a recent publication in the Journal of Global Infectious Diseases, authors discuss the importance of different interventions that would accelerate progress toward elimination. The authors stress that the international community possesses the necessary tools to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality; however, these tools are not being utilized efficiently. They summarize current interventions and highlight examples of countries which have experienced substantial reductions in malaria due to the scale-up of effective interventions. Increased funding and resources, collaborative regional approaches to elimination, and operational research on elimination, will be critical to the final stages of elimination.
