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.

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.

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.
