Regional framework for prevention of malaria reintroduction and certification of malaria elimination 2014–2020

This framework for prevention of the reintroduction of malaria and certification of countries as free from malaria is intended for health policy-makers, heads of national malaria control programmes, heads of epidemiological, parasitological and entomological departments of the ministry of health epidemiological services, and specialists from other ministries and agencies involved in the implementation of programmes for malaria elimination and prevention of malaria reintroduction in central Asia, the South Caucasus, Turkey and some European countries.

The document outlines the key issues related to possible resurgence of malaria in the post-elimination period, the goals and objectives of the programme, and key approaches and measures to prevent malaria reintroduction, as well as scientific, operational, organizational and methodological aspects of the process of certifying countries free from malaria. The guidelines described in the document are intended to help health policy-makers and managers of malaria control programmes to plan, organize and implement measures aimed at preventing malaria reintroduction and at the certification of malaria elimination.
