The World Malaria Report 2011 summarizes information received from 106 malaria-endemic countries and a range of other sources. It analyses prevention and control measures according to a comprehensive set of indicators, and highlights continued progress towards global malaria targets. This year's report builds primarily on data received from countries for the year 2010.
The report shows clear progress in the fight against malaria and a decline in estimated malaria cases and deaths. For the first time, the report contains individual profiles for 99 countries with ongoing malaria transmission. Findings from R4D's LLIN Market Dynamics Project and work by the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) on value for money in malaria programming are cited in the report:
The fact that current funding for malaria programmes falls short of the amount required to achieve universal access to malaria interventions implies that funding needs to be increased from existing levels and/or that malaria control programmes should seek cost savings so that more can be done with existing funds. Larger cost savings are likely to be achieved by focusing on elements that account for the largest proportion of expenditures in malaria control programmes, i.e. ITNs, IRS, diagnosis and treatment. This section draws on findings of the Results for Development Institute’s LLIN Market Dynamics Project and work by the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) on value for money in malaria programming."
