Edited by: Richard G.A. Feachem, Allison A. Phillips, and Geoffrey A. Targett on Behalf of the Malaria Elimination Group
The Prospectus provides detailed and informed practical means of achieving and sustaining zero transmission. It is designed as a road map, providing direction and options from which to choose an appropriate path. The Prospectus reviews the operational, technical, and financial feasibility for those working on the front lines and outlines the tools that can be considered for an elimination program. The 10 chapters of the Prospectus were written by 33 contributing authors.
The Lancet Series on Malaria Elimination
With leadership from the Malaria Elimination Group and the UCSF Global Health Group, The Lancet published a special series on malaria elimination in November 2010 to address the challenges that confront malaria-eliminating countries today. This groundbreaking Series examines the technical, operational, and financial aspects of elimination and includes a global call to action that details the priorities for malaria elimination in the coming decade to ensure continued momentum.
