Disease Control: Malaria (Background, Vision, Mission, Goals, Objectives & Target), Nepal

Background:  Malaria control project in Nepal was first initiated in 1954 with the support from USAID (the then USOM), with the objective of controlling malaria, mainly in plain region (Terai belt) of central Nepal.

Due to various reasons the eradication concept reverted to control program in 1978. Following the call of WHO to revamp the malaria control programs in 1998, Roll Back Malaria (RBM) initiative was launched to control malaria transmission in hard‐core forests, foot‐hills, inner‐Terai and hill river valleys, which accounted for more than 70 % of the total malaria cases in the country. The high risk of acquiring the disease is attributed to the abundance of vector mosquitoes, mobile and vulnerable population, relative inaccessibility of the area, suitable temperature, environmental and socio‐economic factors.
