“Using field tested and proven tools of vector control, case management by rapid diagnosis and prompt treatment, this programme aims to eliminate malaria from Mandla district,” Department of Health Research Secretary and ICMR DG Soumya Swaminathan said.
The lessons learned from this demonstration project will be useful for scaling up malaria elimination programme in the rest of the state and the country, she added.
“I hope with the intensified joint efforts of all the three partners, malaria will be eliminated from Mandla district and would be a presentable model for replication in the other districts of state and other parts of the country,” Madhya Pradesh Commissioner (Health) Pallavi Jain Govil said.
