Authors: Fabrizio Tediosi, Christian Lengeler, Marcia Castro, Rima Shretta, Carol Levin, Tim Wells, Marcel Tanner

This chapter reviews the strategies for malaria control and empirical evidence on the costs and cost-effectiveness of interventions. It then focuses on a systemic approach to malaria control and elimination, describing the relevance of social and environmental determinants, as well as the health systems factors that deliver effective coverage of malaria interventions. Finally, it reviews the tools and technologies being developed for malaria control and their potential contribution to integrated strategies. The chapter uses the terminology endorsed by the World Health Organization (WHO) (2016a).
