The long term agenda for malaria, as described by the Roll Back Malaria Partnership, is global malaria eradication. Eradication means that malaria parasites are no longer circulating anywhere in the world. The road to eradication involves elimination from every country of the world, which involves ending malaria transmission until only a few imported cases remain.
Today, many countries are asking whether they should commit to malaria eradication. CDDEP researchers are involved in malaria elimination feasibility assessments to help countries understand what it takes to achieve elimination so they can make an informed decision. They are also helping to set a global agenda for research and implementation that ends malaria for good.
