Example text

After an overview of the health and socioeconomic burden and the resurgence of the disease, it presents a summary of major initiatives and institutional policies that have been undertaken for malaria control. Key malaria control strategies are described and several successful scaling-up experiences are reviewed. The document then discusses major challenges to implementing malaria control programs designed to reduce the burden that malaria imposes on society and describes circumstances that obstruct the attainment of necessary resources.

On the other hand, human interference may sometimes reduce malaria transmission by making ecological niches unsuitable for local vectors. For instance, organic pollution of most surface water in urbanized areas makes it unsuitable for Anopheles larvae but highly suitable for Culex mosquitoes, and deforestation in Thailand led to the cessation of malaria transmission in certain regions (Oaks and others 1991). Another concern is the incursion of nonimmune people into forests and jungles for agriculture, road construction, timbering, and gem mining where malaria vectors are abundant (Nájera, Liese, and Hammer 1992).

Long-lasting insecticidal nets, which are made from polyethylene fiber into which insecticide is embedded, may be used in place of insecticide-treated bednets to eliminate the need for annual retreatment (N’Guessan and others 2003). Long-lasting insecticidal nets provide several years of protection before retreatment becomes necessary (WHO 2003c). They are physically more durable than ordinary insecticide-treated bednets, which must be replaced every four years. Indoor residual spraying Applications of residual insecticide, especially DDT, to the inside surfaces of house walls and on ceilings was the main method used to eliminate malaria from southern Europe, the highlands of Madagascar, most of the former Soviet Union, and Taiwan (China) in the 1940s and 1950s (Litsios 1996).
