Shrinking the Malaria Map

UCSF Global Health Group’s Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI)

MEI Malaria Elimination Toolkit

MEI’s Malaria Elimination Toolkit provides malaria programs and implementing partners with evidence-based, user-friendly tools to strengthen national and district-level malaria elimination programs. Each tool specifies the target user, from surveillance officers and national malaria control program managers to healthcare providers. These tools have been used successfully in countries such as Indonesia, Eswatini, and China—leading to policy and programmatic changes that are accelerating elimination efforts.

The critical role of the Global Fund’s catalytic funding in ending malaria

The Malaria Elimination Initiative and the RBM Partnership to End Malaria published a joint advocacy briefing outlining how catalytic investments, particularly multi-country grants, have stimulated significant new funding for malaria. In the spirit of the Global Fund’s 2017–2022 strategy to “end the epidemics,” catalytic funds for malaria have raised nearly twice as much in additional investment. Read more. 

Malaria elimination trends in the 2018 World Malaria Report

The WHO World Malaria Report tracks global progress towards the goals set out in the Global Technical Strategy (GTS) for Malaria 2015 – 2030. This year’s report highlights both progress and challenges as malaria endemic countries work towards achieving 2020 GTS targets. Though malaria cases in higher burden countries are on the rise for a second year, the pace of progress is accelerating in a number of low burden countries.
