Drug resistance is one of the greatest challenges of malaria control programme in Mali. Recent advances in next-generation sequencing (NGS) technologies provide new and effective ways of tracking drug-resistant malaria parasites in Africa.
Angola was the main origin country for the imported malaria in Henan Province, China.
The evolutionary selection of malaria parasites within individual hosts is an important factor in the emergence of drug resistance but is still not well understood.
Scale-up of malaria preventive and control interventions over the last decade resulted in substantial declines in mortality and morbidity from the disease in sub-Saharan Africa and many other parts of the world.
Malaria over-treatment was common, particularly in Homa Bay, where the prevalence of malaria was extremely high.
