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.

Eliminating Malaria

In May 2015, the World Health Assembly endorsed a new Global Technical Strategy for Malaria. The strategy includes ambitious goals for malaria control and elimination in the next 15-year period. A key target: eliminating malaria in at least 10 countries by 2020. According to a new analysis from WHO, this goal can be achieved – and surpassed. The report identifies 21 countries that are in a position to eliminate malaria within the next 5 years.
