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 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. It provides policy-makers planners and field coordinators with practical advice on designing and implementing measures to reduce malaria morbidity and mortality in both man-made and natural disasters. Such measures must address the needs of all affected population groups and accommodate changing needs as an acute emergency evolves into either recovery or chronic emergency phase. Ideal or gold standard approaches to malaria control are not always feasible in humanitarian emergencies. Interventions must be adapted to the realities of each emergency. Using this handbook should help humanitarian workers implement effective and concerted responses to malaria problems.
