Table 1 WHO framework key strategies and interventions and their related KZN malaria elimination checklist component

From: Assessing Kwa-Zulu-Natal’s progress towards malaria elimination and its readiness for sub-national verification

WHO framework key strategy or intervention KZN malaria elimination checklist component
Local stratification by malaria intensity Target interventions based on fine scale mapping and stratification, with strategies aligned with WHO global technical strategy pillars
Enhancing and optimizing case detection and case management and role of quality assurance and reference laboratories Enhance and optimize case management—testing, treating and tracking
Enhancing and optimizing vector control Achieve optimal coverage of vector control interventions wherever strata are both receptive and vulnerable to malaria transmission
Surveillance Increase the sensitivity and specificity of the surveillance systems to detect, characterize and monitor all cases (individual and foci)
Accelerating activities towards elimination Tailor response based upon classification and status of the program efforts to investigate and contain transmission
Management and planning Ensure appropriate management and planning
  1. The KZN checklist components are subsequently divided into twenty-eight requirements, and each of these requirements are, in turn, divided into forty-nine indicators. All levels are supported by myriad guideline and policy documents
