Abstract: In recent years, malaria has worsened significantly in the border areas of Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan. The WHO Regional Office for Europe convened a meeting of representatives from these countries to review their current malaria situations, to outline strategies for the increased coordination of malaria control in border areas and to discuss means for regularly exchanging information on these topics. The participants recommended that: WHO develop a strategy to roll back malaria in the countries of central Asia and Kazakhstan, focusing on the coordination of malaria prevention and control in border areas; the WHO regional offices for the Eastern Mediterranean and Europe organize an interregional coordination meeting on malaria, involving Afghanistan, Kazakhstan and central Asian countries, in 2003; WHO and Member States facilitate two coordination meetings for local health personnel in border areas in 2002; and Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan work to coordinate and synchronize their activities to prevent and control malaria in their border areas
