The Global Malaria Programme (GMP) is responsible for coordinating WHO’s global efforts to support countries to control and eliminate malaria. Our work is guided by the Global technical strategy for malaria 2016–2030 (GTS), endorsed by the World Health Assembly in May 2015.
GMP publishes technical documents – including guidelines, recommendations, information notes, policy briefs and operational manuals – on a range of topics relating to malaria control and elimination. According to a comprehensive review of our policy-making and dissemination processes, conducted in 2018, many of our country-based and global malaria partners find it difficult not only to locate WHO’s malaria guidance, but also to understand how the documents fit together.
This compendium aims to simplify access for the end user by listing all WHO policy documents on malaria in a single resource. On pages 4-5, you will find a table with the full “toolkit” of WHO publications on malaria, including:
• the two current WHO guideline documents on malaria vector control and treatment;
• accompanying handbooks, manuals, information notes and policy briefs, including a reference manual on malaria surveillance and a framework for malaria elimination.
The compendium also includes a full list of all formal WHO policy recommendations on malaria. Importantly, you will find here only those that have been approved through a rigorous evidence review process by the Guideline Review Committee.
