Malaria Control Program

Malaria control has always been a priority in Pakistan. National Malaria Control Program was started in 1950. In 1961, Malaria control Programme was converted into Malaria Eradication Program under the auspices of WHO with the financial and technical support from WHO, UNICEF and USAID. In 1977 Malaria Control Program was integrated into health services as part of Communicable Disease Control in Punjab Province. This programme forges consensus among key actors in malaria control, harmonizes action and mobilizes resources to fight malaria in endemic areas. Its aim is to reduce the malaria associated morbidity and mortality by keeping malaria under effective control. The programme has also been involved in Dengue prevention and control activities. As a result of concerted efforts the incidence of malaria has reached its lowest level in the province. Moreover, the same staff is working for prevention and control of avian pandemic influenza (AH1N1), Congo Crimean Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF), Leishmaniasis.
