World Malaria Day 2017
Global Malaria Programme, World Health Organization, 2017
Closing gaps in access to proven malaria control tools is a top priority for the WHO Global Malaria Programme. This year, on World Malaria Day, they place a special focus on prevention gaps. This brochure offers a brief summary of WHO-recommended tools in the malaria prevention arsenal. It is divided into two parts: the first chapter focuses on core vector control measures, and the second on preventive treatment strategies for the most vulnerable groups. They touch on a key biological threat – mosquito resistance to insecticides – and highlight the need for new anti-malaria tools.
