Malaria control in humanitarian emergencies – an inter-agency field handbookPublication Date:
World Health Organisation
The interagency field handbook was developed to set out effective malaria control responses in humanitarian emergencies, particularly during the acute phase when reliance on international humanitarian assistance is greatest. This second edition represents a thorough updating and revision of the first edition. The structure remains similar, but includes an additional chapter on humanitarian coordination. All chapters have been revised to reflect changes in best practices, improvements in technologies, availability of new tools, and changes in WHO recommendations.
The interagency field handbook:
- provides policy-makers, planners and field coordinators with practical advice on designing and implementing measures to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality in all emergencies;
- includes measures that address needs of all affected population groups and accommodate changing needs of emergencies;
- provides a glossary and an index, as well as suggestions for further reading at the end of several chapters.
