AbstractThis Regional Consultation was organized on 26-29 October 2009 to review the achievements and challenges in the implementation of the Revised Malaria Control Strategy in the South-East Asia Region 2006-2010. Several Member States of the South-East Asia Region reported progress in malaria control over the past seven years, during which reduction of malaria morbidity and mortality was also observed. Environmental issues related to malaria transmission such as climate change, integrated vector management and the involvement of non-health sectors and technical partners were also discussed. The consultation provided an opportunity for participants from malaria control programmes and various ministries of Member States to share their experiences, lessons learnt and best practices in integrated approach to malaria control. Recommendations were made on strengthening surveillance, vector management and collaboration with relevant sectors. This document outlines the discussions and deliberations of this Regional Consultation.
