A Policy Guide
Malaria Elimination for All
Malaria Elimination for All
To achieve elimination and strengthen health systems as a result, it is essential to consider how we can advance Universal Health Coverage (UHC) and include malaria testing and treatment within UHC schemes across countries and communities. Improving malaria outcomes also means tackling broader challenges such as nutrition, climate change or gender and inclusion.
This policy guide highlights intersections between malaria and these wider policy challenges across sectors that could impede or reverse elimination efforts.

This guide was developed from a review of literature including World Health Organization guidelines and reports, and a collation of national, regional and global best practices. It is meant to offer policy recommendations and resources to malaria programs, ministries of health and other in-country government and non-government agencies as they advocate for greater cross-sectoral policy engagement and develop more integrated and inclusive malaria elimination strategies.
