Malaria vector control policy recommendations and their applicability to product evaluation
Vector control is an essential component of malaria prevention and control. WHO promotes universal coverage of effective vector control for all atrisk populations. WHO recommends specific vector control interventions primarily based on evidence of their protective efficacy against infection and/or disease in humans (i.e., their epidemiological efficacy).
The WHO Global Malaria Programme is responsible for developingpolicy recommendations for malaria vector control,1 while considering thebroader context of malaria control or elimination programmes. A policyrecommendation is a position statement or recommendation issued byWHO. The most recent WHO recommendation takes precedence over anypreviously issued recommendations.
