Malaria control through community participation is feasible. Malaria elimination not.

I suggest we drag this one over to the forum, since it will be an interesting topic to discuss with the community

Yes, I firmly believe that community participation is very very important for effective malaria control. This has been demonstrated in different epidemiological settings in India during implementation of integrated disease vector control project. All interventions such as long lasting insecticidal nets, indoor residual spraying, source reduction, biological control etc will have very limited success without community involvement.
