WHO. Universal access to malaria diagnostic testing. An operational manual. 2011The aim of this interagency manual is to provide policy, strategy, technical and operational guidance to countries wishing to strengthen or set up routine malaria diagnostic services. These services include the use of both microscopy and rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) at all levels for the management of febrile patients by health workers and are integrated within other national programmes for strengthening laboratory services.

WHO- Targeted Subsidy Strategies for National Scaling Up of Insecticide-Treated Netting Programmes—Principles and Approaches. 2005The purpose of this document is to help those involved in planning, promoting and implementing insecticide-treated netting (ITN) programmes make systematic decisions about how to target public funds effectively. It is based on a week of intensive dialogue—reflecting field experiences in 12 African countries—at a workshop on Mapping models for targeted ITN subsidies.

WHO. Methods and tecniques for assessing exposure to Natimalarial drugs in clinical field studies. 2011Achieving adequate concentrations of antimalarial drugs in the blood is pivotal to curing malaria. Accurate measurement of drug concentrations is essential to ensure optimal dosing of the currently available and newly introduced antimalarial drugs and for differentiating inadequate exposure to a drug from true resistance to the drug.

WHO. Management of Severe Malaria. 2012Malaria continues to be a major global health problem, with over 40% of the world’s population—more than 3.3 billion people—at risk for malaria to varying degrees in countries with on-going transmission. In addition, with modern, rapid means of travel, large numbers of people from nonmalarious areas are being infected, which may seriously affect them after they have returned home.

Malaria control in humanitarian emergencies – An inter-agency field handbook. Second edition. 2013The interagency field handbook was developed to set out effective malaria control responses in humanitarian emergencies, particularly during the acute phase when reliance on international humanitarian assistance is greatest. This second edition represents a thorough updating and revision of the first edition. The structure remains similar, but includes an additional chapter on humanitarian coordination.
