Global technical strategy for malaria 2016–2030

May 2015

The vision of WHO and the global malaria community is a world free of malaria. As part of this vision, the strategy sets ambitious yet feasible global targets for 2030 with milestones for measuring progress for 2020 and 2025. Countries will set their own national or subnational targets, which may differ from the global targets. Adopted by the World Health Assembly in May 2015, the strategy provides comprehensive technical guidance to countries and development partners for the next 15 years, emphasizing the importance of scaling up malaria responses and moving towards elimination. It also highlights the urgent need to increase investments across all interventions – including preventive measures, diagnostic testing, treatment and disease surveillance – as well as in harnessing innovation and expanding research.
