In a world of changing economic structure, of dynamic population movements within and between nations, of expanding inequity of incomes and opportunity with a widening schism between rich and poor, the effective control of communicable diseases has acquired a complexity of growing proportions.
Malaria is no exception, indeed it is, in many ways, a prime example of the urgency of rethinking strategies and control policies for this reason.
Approaches which ignore the challenge of rapid macroeconomic change and its accompanying social and demographic upheavals are unlikely to succeed, yet few malaria control programs, if any, worldwide, include a serious integral economic component of any kind.
Virtually no country integrates malaria control with macroeconomic projection.
Advantage is taken of this moment in history to take up this challenge by identifying some of the options for bringing economic planning more closely into consort with programs for control of malaria, suggesting targets for analysis and subsequent decision-making at both macro and micro levels.
