Strategy for malaria elimination in the Greater Mekong Subregion (2015–2030)
The Strategy for malaria elimination in the Greater Mekong Subregion 2015–2030 was developed based on the new WHO Global technical strategy for malaria 2016–2030 (GTS). It was further refined through a series of consultations that involved the GMS national malaria programmes and their partners, WHO consultants, and staff from WHO’s Global Malaria Programme, the WHO Regional Offices for South-East Asia and the Western Pacific, and the WHO Emergency Response to Artemisinin Resistance in the GMS Regional Hub. The strategy also benefited from inputs from the WHO Malaria Policy Advisory Committee. In further articulating the strategy, targets adopted in the national malaria strategic plans in the GMS countries, and the East Asia Summit leaders’ agreement to the goal of an Asia Pacific free of malaria by 2030, were taken into consideration.
