A new global effort to control malaria
The global campaign to eradicate malaria, launched in 1955 and phased out by the end of the 1960s, has been dubbed a misguided failure. Although the campaign did not come close to achieving its headline objective of eradicating malaria, it did lead to enormous and sustained reductions in the burden of malaria in dozens of countries around the world. Unfortunately, the world failed to heed the right lesson: global eradication is not feasible, but sustained malaria control restricting transmission to low levels is. The time has come to resurrect a worldwide effort to control malaria, albeit one not predicated on complete eradication of the disease.
