Elimination case studies

In 2012, the WHO Global Malaria Programme and the Global Health Group at the University of California launched a series of case studies on malaria elimination. Through a series of 10 reports, national malaria control programmes and researchers review evidence about what works – and what does not – for reaching and sustaining zero malaria transmission.

The 10 case studies chronicle malaria histories, programme successes, challenges and future outlooks in Bhutan, Cape Verde, Malaysia, Mauritius, Philippines, Réunion, Sri Lanka, Tunisia, Turkey and Turkmenistan.

  • The Mauritius, Réunion, Tunisia and Turkmenistan case studies present lessons from successful elimination efforts.
  • The case studies for Bhutan, Cape Verde, Malaysia, Philippines, Sri Lanka and Turkey present lessons from countries that are making remarkable progress towards malaria free-status.

The series brings together insight and evidence that other malaria-endemic countries can use for their own malaria programmes. Many of the details in these case studies have never before been widely available in the public domain. The series was supported through a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
