Article: 56/2307

On 3 June 2022, the World Health Organization (WHO) published in their consolidated guidelines for malaria, a package of new and updated recommendations across a number of technical areas ranging from malaria chemoprevention and mass drug administration to elimination. The guidelines encourage countries to tailor the recommendations to local disease settings for maximum impact. 

The consolidation of the WHO’s malaria guidelines is one of several actions the organization has undertaken in recent years to make its guidance more accessible to end users in malaria-endemic countries. The overall aim is to deliver timely, high-quality recommendations through processes that are more transparent, consistent, efficient and predictable.
