    In the past decade there has been a significant reduction in malaria incidence globally. In some places continuous surveillance has indicated that the reduction in malaria cases has been sustained to the point of near elimination. The drastic reduction in malaria cases may be attributed to the unprecedented financial support to national malaria control programmes by several donors. The use of interventions such as insecticide treated nets, indoor residual insecticide spraying and to some extent environmental manipulation aimed at eliminating mosquito breeding sites have been responsible for the gains achieved. Application of a combination of these measures has brought about heterogeneity of malaria transmission within some countries.
