Abstract

Several resolutions have been adopted and commitments made to scale up malaria control towards elimination in the African Region. These include United Nations, African Union, regional economic communities, World Health Assembly and Regional Committee resolutions. WHO AFRO provides support to countries, regional economic communities and the African Union in planning, implementing monitoring and evaluating their malaria control and elimination strategies. WHO also provides guidance and support for capacity building and resource mobilization towards reduction of the burden of malaria. As a result of scaling up evidence-based and high impact malaria interventions, the overall estimated incidence of malaria in the African Region fell by 33% from 2000 to 2010 and the upward trend of the disease was reversed. Furthermore, 12 countries in the African Region are on track to reduce malaria incidence by at least 50–75% by 2015. The action points of Resolution RC 59/R3 on Accelerated Malaria Control: Towards Elimination in the African Region remain relevant and should continue to guide countries in the context of their broader health, development and poverty reduction agenda.
