For the first time in 10 years, WHO has published new policy guidance on malaria elimination. The 2017 Framework for malaria elimination provides countries with a set of tools and strategies for achieving and maintaining elimination, regardless of where they lie across the continuum of transmission. This document builds on and supersedes the 2007 malaria elimination field manual; it was developed through a broad, consultative process led by the WHO Secretariat and an independent Evidence Review Group chaired by Dr Rick Steketee.
We would like to invite you to participate in a webinar on Monday 10 April in which we will provide an overview of the new framework and answer any questions you may have. Webinars will be offered at three times throughout the day to accommodate different time zones; please join the webinar that best suits your availability. Please also note that the webinar at 2pm Geneva time will be held in Spanish; the other two sessions will be held in English. All three webinars are open to WHO staff, partners and stakeholders.
The framework is attached, as well as key points and a Q&A on the document. Any inquiries about the framework can be sent to Dr Gawrie Loku Galappathythy; for questions about the webinar, please contact Laura Newman.
