Strategic information

Issues related to malaria control must be based on evidence that is generated through various forms of research. The Greater Mekong Sub-region has been at the forefront of malaria research, especially in the area of case management as the issues of drug resistance have forced the region to repeatedly introduce new regimens. The region faces additional challenges in exploring different surveillance strategies for lower transmission and elimination settings, vector control interventions, as well as management of P. vivax in light of increasing chloroquine resistance. CAP-Malaria conducts surveillance, monitoring and evaluation, and operational research to contribute to a growing knowledge base on malaria control in the Mekong. The project conducts both hospital- and community-based surveillance to identify cases not responding to first-line treatment. Entomological research aims to provide more information on 1) how human behavior is linked with malaria borne parasites and specific biting times; 2) insecticide resistance; and 3) outdoor and indoor transmission among others. The project’s M&E strategy works in conjunction with the national malaria control programs to strengthen data collection and use for program planning and to advocate for data sharing between countries to inform cross-border activities. The M&E data, as well as additional operational research studies also provide insight into the effectiveness of various malaria control interventions.
