Malaria Control Policy Assessment
Many countries and health organizations have dedicated new attention and resources to expanding coverage of anti-malaria interventions in the past decade. These interventions include established practices, such as indoor residual spraying, and more recent innovations, including long-lasting insecticide-treated bed nets.

Evaluate the effectiveness of malaria interventions in two countries
By analyzing trends in child mortality, we answer the question, what proportion of the reduction in child mortality is attributable to malaria-control interventions, accounting for all other childhood health interventions?
We do this by compiling all available data to analyze trends in malaria, childhood health interventions, and mortality, both nationally and subnationally, in the focus countries.
The findings serve as evidence-based policy instruments for Zambia’s health programs, as well as guides for other countries and health initiatives tackling malaria.
