Adequate implementation of malaria control strategies requires compliance, at a minimum, with criteria involving the following components:
- The evidence on which the intervention is based, for example, studies of vector habits and sensitivity to insecticides and antimalarials
- Adequate coverage of the target population
- The quality of implementation of the intervention
Within the framework of the Amazon Malaria Initiative (AMI), a program funded by the US Agency for International Development (USAID), two projects being implemented by Management Sciences for Health and also receiving funding from USAID, conducted coordinated evaluations of the performance of malaria control strategies between 2010 and 2012.
