WHO world malaria report 2010:
Malaria transmission in Zanzibar, UR Tanzania, is perennial with seasonal peaks; most cases are caused by P. falciparum. Morbidity and mortality have been substantially reduced, with a decrease of ≥75% in the numbers of malaria cases, inpatient malaria cases and deaths in 2009 compared to the average for 2000–2004. This decline is strongly linked to the scale-up of LLINs, IRS and ACT from 2004. The programme delivered 500 000 LLINs during 2007–2009, enough to replace old nets for the entire population at risk, implemented IRS in several rounds protecting 90% of population at risk, and delivered ACTs. Detailed funding information was not provided but expenditure on malaria in 2009 was US$ 450 000 mainly funded by PMI and UNICEF.
Malaria elimination strategy proposed by Soper Strategies:
Elimination based on larviciding (biopesticides Bacillus thuringiensis isrealensis/Spinosad, insect growth regulator pyriproxyfen) and source reduction. Soper Strategies can investigate the feasibility of eradication in your area. After an in depth field reconnaissance you'll receive a full feasibility report with a custom eradication strategy.
