Vietnam’s health ministry has drafted a national strategy to eradicate malaria over the next 20 years through early diagnoses, effective treatment and preventative measures.
The proposed strategy covers the period 2011-2020. The aim would be to eliminate the disease in 40 provinces and cities by 2020, and reduce the infection rate in the remaining areas to fewer than 15 per thousand persons and the fatality rate to under 2 per 10 million. The health ministry then envisages that full eradication of the disease would take place by 2030.
