The scale-up of malaria control efforts in recent years, coupled with major investments in malaria research, has produced impressive public health impact in a number of countries and has led to the development of new tools and strategies aimed at further consolidating malaria control goals.
Integrated management of malaria vectors in Uganda remains an underdeveloped component of malaria control policy.
Insecticide-treated bed nets are the preeminent malaria control means; though there is no consensus as to a best practice for large-scale insecticide-treated bed net distribution.
The proportion of malaria-related publications out of the overall biomedical output from the 11 target Asian-Pacific countries is decreasing.
The year-two-evaluation result indicates that IPTC given three times in a year (every four months) combined with timely treatment of febrile malaria illness, is effective to reduce malaria parasite prevalence in children aged 6 to 60 months in the study community.
To optimize malaria control, WHO has prioritised the need for new indicators to evaluate the efficacy of malaria vector control strategies.
School malaria surveys provide a rapid, cheap and sustainable approach to malaria surveillance which can complement household surveys, and in Kenya, show that large areas of the country do not merit any direct school-based control, but schoolbased interventions, coupled with strengthened communitybased strategies, are warranted in western and coastal Kenya.
Both fungal isolates reduced mosquito survival on immediate exposure and up to 28 d after application. Conidia were more effective when applied on mud panels and cotton cloth compared with polyester netting.
