The upcoming conference of the Pan Africa Mosquito Control Association (PAMCA) will take place from 23-25 September, 2019 in Yaoundé, Cameroon. Like we did during the last MIM conference, MalariaWorld and the MESA Correspondent Program will work together to provide you with an impression of the PAMCA conference presentations.

23 August 2019 | Report


After its 3-year study of trends and future projections for the factors and determinants that underpin malaria, the Strategic Advisory Group on Malaria Eradication (SAGme) reaffirms that eradication is a goal worth pursuing, likely to save millions of lives and billions of dollars. However, with our current tools, we are far from a malaria-free world.

WHO - The E-2020 initiative of 21 malaria-eliminating countries: 2019 progress report

June 20, 2019 - 20:08 -- Malaria World

Creating a malaria-free world is a bold and important public health and sustainable development goal. It is also the vision of the Global technical strategy for malaria 2016-2030, which calls for the elimination of malaria in at least 10 countries by the year 2020.

In 2016, WHO identified 21 countries, spanning 5 regions, that could defeat malaria by 2020, considering the likelihood of elimination across key criteria. All are united by one target: to achieve zero indigenous cases of malaria within the 2020 timeline. This report charts their progress.

WHO Manual For Countries Developing National Malaria Strategic Plans

June 4, 2019 - 13:33 -- Malaria World

All malaria-endemic countries in Africa are on a sliding scale towards a malaria-free future. Bold and ambitious goals around malaria elimination were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in September 2015 through target 3.3 of the Sustainable Development Goals; by Africa’s leaders through the Africa Agenda 2063; and by the World Health Assembly in May 2015 through the Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016–2030, known as the GTS. The GTS has four 2030 goals and targets: reduce malaria mortality rates globally by at least 90% compared with 2015; reduce malaria case incidence globally by at least 90% compared with 2015; eliminate malaria from at least 35 countries in which malaria was transmitted in 2015; and prevent re-establishment of malaria in all countries that are malaria-free. The post-2015 period therefore presents a scenario of bold reforms intended to actualize a malaria-free future. In order to align the GTS to the African context, the Framework for implementing the Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016–2030 in the African Region was developed.
