ReviewResidual malaria transmission includes all forms of transmission that can persist after achieving full population-wide coverage with effective LLINs and/or IRS. This impressive review recommends that national programmes start assessing options for addressing residual transmission under programmatic conditions.
ResearchMalaria transmission intensity has a spatial-temporal variation that is closely related to climate and weather. The main strategy for the control of an epidemic is early warning and weather-driven model gave been developed for such predicting epidemics. This paper test existing models using different ecological situations in Kenya.

ResearchThis study provides a cost analysis of an operational surveillance tool used specifically for malaria elimination in the South-West Pacific. It is demonstrated that the costs of such a decision support system are driven by specialized equipment and travel expenses.
Aims & scope
Malaria Journal is aimed at the scientific community interested in malaria in its broadest sense. It is the only journal that publishes exclusively articles on malaria and, as such, it aims to bring together knowledge from the different specialities involved in this very broad discipline, from the bench to the bedside and to the field. Malaria Journal offers a fast publication schedule while maintaining rigorous peer-review; this is achieved by managing the whole of the publication process electronically, from submission to peer-review.
