A major gap in the malaria response landscape is the absence of a forum where representatives of the entire malaria world can meet. Our key aim for the inaugural World Congress on Malaria is to unify and energise the broader malaria community around a common sense of purpose, including one that links malaria with the wider global health and human development goals of Universal Health Coverage and the Sustainable Development Goals. Together we can learn from each other, plan for the implementation of cross sector strategies and galvanise the effort for the eradication of malaria.
WHO has just published its toolkit for Integrated Vector Management in sub-Saharan Africa. It is attached here for your perusal (and use!).
This toolkit for integrated vector management (IVM) is designed to help national and regional programme managers coordinate across sectors to design and run large IVM programmes. It is an extension of earlier guidance and teaching material provided by WHO: Handbook for integrated vector management , Monitoring and evaluation indicators for integrated vector management , Guidance on policy-making for integrated vector management and Core structure for training curricula on integrated vector management.
