The Greater Mekong Sub-region countries focus on universal access and targeted approaches to malaria prevention, diagnosis and treatment through mapping, preventing, testing and treating of the disease. It tries to bring the leaders in a single dice to work and commit for the malaria elimination.
In order to eliminate malaria, there should be enough human resources and logistic to meet the need of the place. The logistics such as bed nets, test kits, medicines as well as the information system are a prime requirement for the elimination strategy. Identification of the risk population and tracking them through different modes such as real-time, border check-post could help them deal the complex situation. The government policy should be out reaching the vulnerable and marginalized population as well. There should be work for underserved populations who don’t receive malaria prevention, testing and treatment. The real time data sharing and tracking should be there in order to control the outbreaks and further transmission in the new areas. The new information should be shared with the ministry of foreign affairs, coordinate with neighbours to address the spread of disease.
In order to tackle and cover the gap, there are few areas, which needs to be served to have a better outcome. Regular surveillance, data management, sharing of information across the border is few priorities, which should be looked for.
The working areas are the hard to reach population, which has limited data and visibility around that access and coverage. Hence there should be robust surveillance, reporting, commitment and motivation towards the goal of malaria elimination.
Nevertheless, the new system of technology should be carried together to enhance the coverage and elimination such as webcam, real-time data sharing.
