National and Community Context – Sources for National Malaria Data

Talking to your provincial or district health officers will help complement what you learn from National Malaria Control Program’s National Malaria Strategic Plan. There are many places to find national-level data on the malaria situation in your country. Some sources have general information while others have very specific findings from research. The following four sources are reliable data sources for malaria information, in addition to information given to you by your Ministry of Health and National Malaria Control Program:

  1. World Malaria Report — World Health Organization
    1. The World Health Organization publishes a yearly report on malaria progress that provides information on country and regional progress and problems with malaria. It is a rich resource to learn more about malaria in your country and region.
  2. Country Profiles Malaria Operational Plans  — U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative
    1. You can also learn a lot about malaria from reading the country profiles and Malaria Operational Plans from the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative. These documents have extensive information about the malaria burden, partners, funding, and special issues on their 24 focus African countries and three countries in the Greater Mekong region.
  3. Africa Subregion Pages — RBM Partnership to End Malaria
    1. The RBM Partnership to End Malaria coordinates malaria activities across four subregions in Africa which collect information on country and regional level malaria activities:
