WHO. Information note on interim selection criteria procurement - malaria rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) 2010In view of the increasing demand of countries to scale-up malaria diagnostics following the large-scale introduction of expensive antimalarial medicines, and the decreasing malaria trends in many countries, there is a need to provide clear guidance on the criteria for selecting malaria diagnostics meeting international quality standards.

Estrategia para la toma de decisiones en el marco del manejo integrado de vectores de malaria. 2013 (In Spanish) Esta estrategia se justifica dada la variedad de escenarios eco-epidemiológicos en los que ocurre la transmisión de malaria en la región de las Américas, lo que determina diferencias en la dinámica de transmisión y de los condicionantes de la efectividad de las acciones de control vectorial, y constituye un reto para la planificación costo - efectiva de intervenciones. La Estrategia promueve por lo tanto priorizar los recursos disponibles para realizar intervenciones con calidad y sostenibilidad en las localidades – focos que determinan la mayor carga de enfermedad – concentración de casos, implementar procesos de análisis para la adecuada selección de las intervenciones y evaluar su efectividad e impacto.
