WHO. Disease Surveillance for Malaria Elimination, 2012The aim of the elimination phase is to stop local transmission of malaria, in contrast to the control phase, in which the objective is to reduce the number of cases to low levels but not necessarily interrupt local transmission.

Desempeño de las pruebas de diagnóstico rápido de la malaria. Resultados de la evaluación realizada po r la OMS de las pruebas de diagnóstico rápido de la malaria: 1a y 2a ronda (2009)La Organización Mundial de la Salud calcula que la mitad de la población mundial corre el riesgo de contraer la malaria. El año pasado, 243 millones de personas presentaron malaria clínica (86% en África), con casi 863.000 muertes (89% en África, la mayor parte de ellos, niños).

WHO. Disease Surveillance for Malaria Control, 2012A malaria surveillance system consists of the tools, procedures, people and structures that generate information on malaria cases and deaths, which can be used for planning, monitoring and evaluating malaria control programmes.

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. 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.Global Plan for Insecticide Resistance Management in Malaria Vectors (GPIRM) 2012Management in malaria vectors (GPIRM) is a call to action. Through this document, WHO and the Roll Back Malaria Partnership call on governments of malaria-endemic countries, donor organizations, UN agencies, as well as research and industry partners, to implement a five-pillar strategy to tackle the growing threat of insecticide resistance and to facilitate the development of innovative vector control tools and strategies.

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. Malaria Rapid Diagnostic Test Performance. Summary Results of WHO product testing of malaria RDTs: Rounds 1 and 2 (2008-2009)The World Health Organization estimates that half the world’s population are at risk of malaria, with 243 million people developing clinical malaria last year (86% in Africa), with nearly 863,000 deaths (89% in Africa, most being children).
