  • Description:
    For more than 60 years, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has been a leader in the fight against malaria since successfully eliminating it in the United States. Building on that success, CDC experts continue to develop and evaluate malaria control interventions to reduce malaria illness and death and ultimately to eliminate malaria globally. CDC’s strategic research helped develop and evaluate each of the effective tools now used throughout the world to prevent and control malaria: • Insecticide-treated bed nets (ITNs) • Intermittent preventive treatment for pregnant women (IPTp) • Improved management of malaria illness with rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs) and artemisinin-containing combination therapies (ACTs) • Indoor residual spraying (IRS) Massive scale-up of these proven interventions in the last decade has led to unprecedented gains in the fight against malaria. From 2000 to 2015, 6.2 million lives were saved globally, and malaria deaths in Africa were cut by more than half. CS246824D cdc_malaria_research_508.pdf
