Core strategies for elimination
1. Maintaining high levels of prevention coverage reached through scale-up.Ensuring clinical malaria infections are promptly diagnosed with quality laboratory methods (e.g., microscopy or rapid diagnostic tests and treated with the national standard antimalarial drug).
2. Implementing a set of locally-based strategies to proactively clear malaria infection in entire communities and establishing infection surveillance systems that will identify and contain remaining focal transmission.3. Transitioning the national evaluation program to monitor infection transmission and establish the ability to document and hold infection transmission at zero.
Some countries that have successfully reduced malaria burden are implementing an innovative surveillance system designed to find and treat remaining malaria infections. This three-step approach helps countries implement robust malaria surveillance and reporting systems, find and treat all infections in identified malaria hotspots, and respond to potential outbreaks before they grow—with the ultimate goal of eliminating all malaria illnesses and deaths.
