WHO. Community Involvement in Rolling Back Malaria, 2002The RBM community movement is both an active participant in malaria programmes and a political force intended to bring pressure upon governments to ensure that the health care needs of those most at risk of malaria are met. Evidence-based actions underpin all operations.

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).

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.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.
