To develop a standardized multidisciplinary method (tool box) for the evaluation of the effectiveness of malaria control interventions. In order to guide policy making, we propose to carry out a broad and comprehensive evaluation of interventions deployed in a given setting, including an evaluation of their effectiveness and the identification of the key determinants affecting their effectiveness

Rationale and Abstract

Palevalut is an operational research project to evaluate the effectiveness of resources currently deployed in the fight against malaria (malaria) and to identify the barriers to their effectiveness.

To achieve an integrated assessment of the fight, several methods are incorporated within a "toolbox", which is assessed by several teams in Africa and the Indian Ocean, and made publicly available on this website.

To embrace a broad view of the fight against malaria, many disciplines are integrated in the "toolbox": epidemiology, entomology (study of mosquitoes), biology and immunology, parasitology and study of the sensitivity to antimalarial drugs , health economics, social anthropology and analysis of health systems. Each discipline providing additional information, the implementation of the full implementation toolkit for assessing the number of malaria cases avoided by means of struggle, their cost-effectiveness, and barriers and aid effectiveness.

Control methods that are evaluated include, among others, ITNs long duration of action of insecticides, indoor residual spraying of residual insecticides, intermittent preventive treatment during pregnancy, diagnosis by rapid test, treatment by artemisinin-based combinations, and information-education-communication campaigns. This list is not exhaustive and the approach is flexible according to the methods to assess
