An investment case for preventing the reintroduction of malaria in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has had no locally transmitted cases of malaria since October 2012 and no indigenous deaths since 2007. However, these successes are being challenged by sustained receptivity and vulnerability to malaria, declining financial assistance from external donors, waning political interest to tackle malaria, and competing national health priorities. The purpose of this study is to develop an investment case for prevention of reintroduction (POR) of malaria in Sri Lanka that can be used by the Anti-Malaria Campaign to advocate for sustained financial resources.
