The past, present and future use of epidemiological intelligence to plan malaria vector control and parasite prevention in Uganda
TLDR
A perspective is provided as to how epidemiological intelligence was used to design malaria control before and during the global malaria eradication programme (GMEP) and to contrast this with the evidence generated in support of the Roll Back Malaria (RBM) initiative from 1998 to date.
