New publication - Eliminating malaria in Turkey

The WHO Global Malaria Programme and the Global Health Group at the University of California in San Francisco, supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, launched a new series of case-studies on malaria elimination: Eliminating malaria. In this series, national malaria control programmes and researchers generate new evidence about what works – and what does not – for reaching and sustaining zero malaria transmission.

This case-study describes the history of malaria in Turkey up to 2011 and evaluates the policies and strategies used for malaria control and elimination.
