Evidence for Optimal Allocation of Malaria Interventions in Africa

Fabrizio Tediosiemail, Melissa Penny

In recent decades, malaria burden has been significantly reduced through scale-up of effective preventive interventions such as insecticide-treated nets (ITNs), indoor residual spraying (IRS), and via increased and improved treatment of clinical cases. Yet a significant increase in funding will be required to achieve the goals of burden reduction and elimination set by the WHO Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016–2030. Despite ITNs, IRS, and treatment having been shown to be cost-effective, little evidence is available on which combination of interventions should be prioritised to rationally allocate resources that maximise health benefits.
