Malaria elimination strategy

Malaria Consortium’s work includes both implementation and research activities. One of the main goals of the organization is to identify innovative approaches for monitoring, evaluation and surveillance systems, and high quality implementation research.

Currently, Malaria Consortium is working in a number of countries located in different regions of the world: Cambodia, Ethiopia, Ghana, Mozambique, Myanmar, Nigeria, Thailand, South Sudan and Uganda.

In Southeast Asia, Malaria Consortium is committed to working closely with the National Malaria Control Programmes (NMCPs) to contribute to the long term elimination strategies.  For instance, in the Greater Mekong Subregion, Malaria Consortium’s work has focused on trying to support strategies for rapid elimination in areas where there are high levels of artemisinin resistance.

At the moment, Malaria Consortium is developing its new strategy which will be available at the end of 2015. Within the new strategy, Malaria Consortium will continue to support malaria elimination efforts through implementation based on operational research. Over the next years, the main research priorities for malaria control and elimination will be:

  • Addressing bottlenecks in the health system and the private sector
  • Tackling drug resistance
  • Improving vector control
  • Delivering malaria interventions for migrant and mobile populations
