Malaria elimination strategy

The Global Health Group (GHG) aims to bridge the gap between evidence, policy and implementation to stimulate practical international and local action to solve critical health challenges. GHG’s Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI) places particular emphasis on global support, regional coordination and country support in Asia Pacific and southern Africa, and operational and economic research.

Currently, the MEI is developing new strategies and partnerships for:

  • Documenting country success on malaria elimination through case studies and country briefings.
  • Operational research to improve surveillance strategies for elimination.
  • Research on the costs, benefits, and financing requirements and mechanisms for elimination and preventing reintroduction.
