Consensus on Malaria Control and Elimination in the Asia-Pacific

With a common purpose – to combat and ultimately eliminate malaria from the region – representatives from over 30 countries and 130 organisations in the Asia-Pacific region and beyond met in Sydney, Australia, from 31 October to 2 November 2012 at Malaria 2012: Saving lives in the Asia-Pacific. This gathering was held in the lead up to 2015, the target date for achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

This consensus document summarises priority actions to achieve global and national malaria targets in the Asia-Pacific region and to immediately address emerging artemisinin resistance. It emphasises the importance of collective regional action to achieve these goals – action that will save lives and reduce suffering and economic loss.

This consensus is based on individual and public consultations and deliberations in the lead up to and during Malaria 2012; the findings of background papers prepared for Malaria 2012; and the recommendations of a recent detailed assessment of the response to artemisinin resistance. The final consensus represents the agreement of participants at Malaria 2012.
