Prioritization Of Available Tools Could Help Maximize Impact Of Malaria Interventions, Study Says

BMC’s “Malaria Journal”: Prioritizing the scale-up of interventions for malaria control and elimination
Peter Winskill, research fellow at the MRC Centre for Global Infectious Disease Analysis at Imperial College’s School of Public Health, and colleagues estimate the cost and impact of different interventions to address malaria transmission, writing, “In a program that is budget restricted, it is essential that investment in available tools be effectively prioritized to maximize impact for a given investment. The cornerstones of malaria control: vector control and treatment, remain vital, but questions of when to scale and when to introduce other interventions must be rigorously assessed. This quantitative analysis considers the scale-up or core interventions to inform decision making in this area” (4/8).
