The Global Malaria Eradication Program, launched in the middle of the last century, over-promised and under-delivered . Decades of pessimism followed, during which malariologists were afraid to even mention the goal of this program by name . The term eradication was often nervously referred to as “the E-word” by a disillusioned community that had learned from bitter experience that optimistic forecasts  had been based on an oversimplified view of transmission ecology . Eradication of malaria remains beyond our grasp today, but is nevertheless firmly back on the global health agenda as a long-term target .
