resources capacity at all levels to manage and implement malaria interventions
Objective 3 (Health Financing) – To secure government and non-government financing to
sustain malaria control and elimination efforts at all levels
Objective 4 (Health Information and Regulation) – To ensure quality malaria services, timely
detection of infection and immediate response, and information and evidence to guide malaria
elimination

3. Annual Stratification using Foci Classification;
4. Strengthened recording and reporting;
5. Use of Primaquine as a transmission-blocking agent;
6. Use of Artesunate ampoules and suppositories;
7. Expanded RDT and sustained microscopy services;
8. LLIN as continued cornerstone of vector control
9. IRS in border areas and as outbreak response mechanism;
10. Quality assurance monitoring to cover all aspects of malaria service delivery;
