Sri Lanka Serves As Example Of Malaria Elimination, Shows Regional Partnerships Necessary To Eradicate Disease Globally

Devex: Lessons from Sri Lanka on malaria elimination
“…After staying malaria-free for three consecutive years, the country was able to apply for World Health Organization certification of malaria elimination. Since Sri Lanka was declared malaria-free on Sept. 5, the country has now emerged as an example of what is needed to eliminate malaria and what are the opportunities and challenges of malaria-free status. It also shows the need for regional collaboration in order to achieve global malaria eradication…” (Cheney, 12/15).
