The areas of the world whose populations are most affected by complex emergencies are often those with the greatest malaria burden. Consequently, malaria is a significant cause of death and illness in complex emergency situations. WHO has published this handbook in coordination with other agencies, including Medecins sans Frontieres, UNHCR, and the CDC. Malaria Control in Complex Emergencies--An inter-agency field handbook focuses on effective malaria control in complex emergencies, particularly during the acute phase when reliance on international humanitarian assistance is greatest. It provides practical guidance on designing, implementing and monitoring measures to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality. Such measures address the needs of both the displaced and the host populations and accommodate the changeing needs as an acute emergency evolves into a more stable situation. The price of the publication is US$22.50, and US$15.75 in developing countries. It can be ordered from This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
