Global plan for insecticide resistance management in malaria vectors

World Health Organization (WHO), (2012)


The plan contains the latest available evidence on the extent of insecticide resistance around the world, and puts forward a strategy for global and country levels, identifying clear roles and timelines for all stakeholders. The GPIRM also summarizes information about innovative new products being developed and sets out the immediate research and development priorities.

Guidance for managing ethical issues in infectious disease outbreaks

World Health Organization (WHO), (2016)


Infectious disease outbreaks are periods of great uncertainty. Events unfold, resources and capacities that are often limited are stretched yet further, and decisions for a public health response must be made quickly, even though the evidence for decision-making may be scant. In such a situation, public health officials, policy-makers, funders, researchers, field epidemiologists, first responders, national ethics boards, health-care workers, and public health practitioners need a moral compass to guide them in their decision-making.

Conducted November 2011 to February 2012: Summary Report
This summary report has five sections. Following the introduction (Section 1), Section 2 sets out summary findings and recommendations of the assessment team. Section 3 describes the context in which artemisinin resistance is being tackled. Section 4 highlights key achievements and enabling factors for the response to artemisinin resistance, whilst Section 5 provides a more detailed discussion of major issues to be addressed.

Approaches for mobile and migrant populations in the context of malaria multi-drug resistance and malaria elimination in the Greater Mekong Subregion

World Health Organization ( WHO), Regional Office for South-East-Asia, (2016)


The emergence of multifrug-resistant malaria in the Greater Mekong Subregion (‎GMS)‎ has been identified as an emergency issue that may have catastrophic consequences on the future of malaria elimination in the GMS as well as globally. In recognition of the need for a cohesive regional response, GMS countries have committed to a shared goal of eliminating malaria from the GMS by 2030 working within the framework of the Strategy for Malaria Elimination in the Greater Mekong Subregion 2015-2030. Population mobility has been identified as a key concern in the context of multidrug-resistant malaria; and in a region of highly porous borders where the majority of intra-Mekong migration occurs through informal channels, addressing the health needs of migrant populations has never been more critical.

Money and Mosquitoes: The Economics of Malaria in an Age of declining Aid

Eric Maskin, Célestin Monga, Josselin Thuilliez and others, (2018)


(African Development Bank policy research document 1)
The report examines financing in the battle against malaria, focusing on the role of foreign aid. It analyzes whether or not a disease such as malaria can be controlled or eliminated in Africa without health aid. It also presents a theoretical model of the economics of malaria and shows how health aid can help avoid the “disease trap.” While calling for increased funding from international sources to fight malaria, it also recommends that African countries step up their own efforts, including on domestic resource mobilization. In 2016, governments of endemic countries contributed 31% of the estimated total of US $ 2.7 billion.
Between 2000 and 2014, malaria control efforts were scaled up and worldwide deaths were cut in half. But declining health aid and deprioritized vertical aid (as for malaria), despite its potentially great efficiency, have led to rising numbers of cases. In 2016, 216 million cases of malaria were reported, up from 211 million in 2015. Africa was home to 90% of all malaria cases and 91% of malaria deaths in 2016. Progress appears to have stalled in the global fight against the disease.

Lignes directrices unifiées sur le suivi des patients infectés par le VIH et la surveillance des cas selon une approche centrée sur la personne

Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS), (2017)


Ces lignes directrices prônent une approche centrée sur la personne des informations stratégiques sur le VIH, ce qui implique de cesser de collecter des données agrégées dans les services (par exemple, le nombre de tests de dépistage du VIH administrés) pour s’intéresser au patient qui reçoit une cascade de services liés entre eux, afin d’améliorer les soins prodigués aux patients et les résultats sanitaires.
Elles réunissent les orientations données en matière de systèmes de suivi des patients et de cas d’infection à VIH dans le cadre du système de surveillance de santé publique. Elles recommandent le recours à un identifiant unique pour le patient, afin d'établir une liaison entre tous les services de santé, ce qui permet de mesurer la cascade de services sur la durée.

Lignes directrices unifiées sur la prévention, le diagnostic, le traitement et les soins du VIH pour les populations clés

Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS), (2016)


Dans ces nouveau lignes directrices unifiées sur la prévention, le diagnostic, le traitement et les soins du VIH pour les populations clés, l’Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS) a regroupé et harmonisé tous les guides existants qui se rapportent aux cinq (5) populations clés – les hommes ayant des rapports sexuels avec des hommes, les consommateurs de drogues par injection, les personnes en prison et autres centres fermés, les travailleurs(ses) de sexe et les personnes transgenres – et met à jour les guides et recommandations sélectionnés. Ces lignes directrices ont pour objectif de : fournir un ensemble complet de recommandations liées au VIH et fondées sur des preuves pour toutes les populations clés; accroître la sensibilisation aux besoins des populations clés et aux questions importantes à celles-ci ; améliorer l’accès, la couverture et l’utilisation des services efficaces et acceptables; et catalyser un plus grand engagement national et mondial au financement et aux services appropriés.
