I wish to consider the situations prevailing in those countries where within the last 90 years, malaria had previously been endemic but which countries have since been certified by WHO as malaria-free. In particular, I wish to examine generally whether or not the methods of eradication were initiated/directed/managed/controlled on a daily basis by persons of that country OR by persons from outside agencies. I do not wish to consider the sources of the finance, but I wish to find out whether or not in those countries thus certified, did they initiate the campaign themselves and then manage and conduct it themselves, or did an outside agency step in, and the population merely complied with the directions given by the outside agency.
Whilst I realise if an outside agency would have been invited to deal with it, the head of that country would have assumed formal responsibility. But I am trying to consider who practically ran each campaign - was that a native person of that country or someone from outside.
I would be grateful if MalariaWorld readers could provide me some examples or information on this based on what they have seen or experienced.
