Case studies on malaria elimination

In this series, national malaria control programmes and researchers generate new evidence about what works – and what does not – for reaching and sustaining zero malaria transmission.

The first four case studies of this series – Cape Verde, Mauritius, Sri Lanka and Turkmenistan - chronicle their malaria histories, programme successes, challenges and future outlooks. The Mauritius and Turkmenistan case studies present lessons from successful elimination efforts and the Cape Verde and Sri Lanka case studies present lessons from countries that are making remarkable progress towards malaria freedom. This documentation provides insight and evidence that other countries can use for their own malaria programmes. Many of the details in these case studies have never before been widely available in the public domain.
