Malaria is one of the world's most important causes of mortality and morbidity, mainly affecting countries in low endemic areas. Over the last decade, substantial progress has been made globally in reducing malaria burden through increased coverage with vector control interventions and improved access to diagnosis and treatment. However, the funding has recently plateaued pushing to the forefront of the policy agenda the need to optimize deployment of interventions, based on understanding of countries’ local malaria transmission and burden. In recent years, the availability and quality of malaria-relevant data have increased, encouraging countries to use evidence to make decisions, as promoted by the High Burden to High Impact initiative launched by the World Health Organization (WHO). The Swiss TPH develops and applies epidemiological, statistical and mathematical methods to evaluate and predict malaria transmission and the impact of interventions in order to provide support National Malaria Control Programs (NMCPs) and their partners in their evidence-based decision-making processes.
