The planning and implementation of a malaria control programme must be based on epidemiological analysis, selection and application of interventions suitable to the local malaria situation. This training module on epidemiological approach for malaria control has been developed by WHO to improve the capacity of managers and other health professionals of malaria control programmes in understanding the key determinants of malaria epidemiology, and their interactions, as the basis for the selection of appropriate prevention and control interventions. The module can be used both for in-service training programmes and pre-service training of health workers.

The module is in two parts, the Guide for Participants and the Guide for Tutors. The Guide for Participants provides instructional materials and exercises designed to stimulate active learning by individual or group work. The solutions to these exercises are provided in the Guide for Tutors.
