To understand current practices and share information on malaria elimination strategies, a survey specifically addressing country policies on case investigation and reactive case detection was carried out among fourteen countries of the Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network (APMEN). Results indicate that there are a wide variety of case investigation and active case detection activities employed by the 13 countries that responded to the survey. There is little evidence available to support countries in deciding which methods to maintain, change or adopt for improved effectiveness and efficiency.
