Strategy Part 1: Aggressive Control in the Malaria Heartland
Part 1 focuses on the need for greatly strengthened and expanded malaria control programs in the malaria heartland countries to achieve low transmission and mortality. The majority of deaths and disease from malaria occur in these tropical areas where the burden on the population and the economy is the greatest. Part 1 is the part of the overall strategy receiving the most investment and attention. It is from this strengthened counterattack against malaria in its heartland, especially in Africa, that the biggest benefits in reduced death and suffering will be achieved.
