Malaria is considered as a major threat to health systems. It is still considered as one of the most important infectious diseases in Iran, but with an elimination goal in 2025. This study aimed to review the malaria situation in Iran over the 16 years.

Serological analysis identified a decline in P. falciparum transmission in the urban areas of Chabahar, consistent with a previously described decrease in malaria in the early 1990s, demonstrating the utility of this approach to reconstruct exposure history.

It seems that the decline of malaria transmission, which has been initiated over the past few years, has accelerated as a result of the elimination programme, and Iran is approaching the goals set regarding the elimination of this disease.

Results of this study have revealed that there are many malaria vectors that are distributed in Minab County and some of them are expected to be predominant in areas with special topographic characteristics.

In conclusion, the present study showed a very low genetic diversity of pfgcs1 gene among Iranian isolates. Considering PfGCS1 as a conserved TBV candidate, our data provides valuable information to develop a PfGCS1-based TBV.

The result showed the low genetic diversity of Iranian PfAMA1 with 11 PfAMA1 haplotypes in which nine out of 11 haplotypes are novel and have been reported for the first time. The Iranian P. falciparum population indicated a moderate level of genetic differentiation.
