We are organizing a Special Issue on the “Current Situation and Perspectives of Malaria Epidemiology and Control” in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health. The venue is a peer-reviewed scientific journal that publishes articles and communications in the interdisciplinary area of environmental health sciences and public health. For detailed information on the journal, we refer you to https://www.mdpi.com/journal/ijerph.
The targets of the Global Technical Strategy for Malaria 2016–2030 (GTS) are, by 2030: To reduce malaria incidence and mortality rates globally by at least 90% compared with 2015 levels; to eliminate malaria from at least 35 countries in which malaria was transmitted in 2015; and to prevent re-establishment of malaria in all countries that are malaria free. To achieve these targets, common efforts and sustained investments in malaria programs and research is needed. This Special Issue will act as an open platform to share among public health officials and scientist: Epidemiological data, best control and preventive activities, diagnosis and treatment practices and perspectives, best practices in mosquito control, data on insecticide’s resistance and experience on new preventive tools. The overall aim is to increase the knowledge on malaria control to contribute in achieving the GTS targets of the World Health Organization.
This Special Issue is open to any subject area related to the malaria epidemiology and control. The listed keywords suggest just a few of the many possibilities.
