Objective  The National Malaria Control Program (NMCP) in Vietnam is based on application of insecticide‐treated bed nets (ITNs), spraying of insecticides and early microscopic diagnosis of malaria and treatment (EDTM) with artemisinin drugs. This study explores the implementation of the NMCP at provincial level and its impact on malaria incidence (mi) and prevalence in Binh Thuan in southern Vietnam. 
The decline of malaria in Vietnam, 1991-2014
TLDR
There was no consistent effect of vector control on malaria cases in Vietnam as a whole, nor was any effect found when the data were broken up regionally, suggesting that the success of different types of malaria interventions is region specific.
Measuring the Association between Artemisinin-Based Case Management and Malaria Incidence in Southern Vietnam, 1991–2010
TLDR
It is suggested that including an artemisinin component in malaria drug regimens was strongly associated with reduced malaria incidence in southern Vietnam, whereas changes in urbanization and coverage with ITN or IRS were not.
The decline of malaria in Vietnam, 1991–2014
TLDR
The decline of malaria in Vietnam can largely be attributed to the adoption of artemisinin-based case management, and recent analyses from Africa showed that insecticide-treated nets had the greatest effect on lowering malaria prevalence, suggesting that the success of interventions is region-specific.
COMMUNITY ACTION TO SUPPORT MALARIA CONTROL IN TRADITIONAL VILLAGES IN HUONG HOA DISTRICT, QUANG TRI PROVINCE, VIETNAM
TLDR
The CMHD intervention could empower to change the traditional routines of the people in the mountainous area and could also lead to an effective health promotion, and better functioning of the existing "vertical" programs.
Determinants of malaria control in a rural community in Eastern Rwanda
Malaria disease – particularly that caused by infection with Plasmodium falciparum parasite - remains a leading cause of severe morbidity and mortality particularly in sub-Saharan Africa, of which
Malaria situation in Iran: 2002–2017
TLDR
The dramatic drop in the incidence of autochthonous cases can hopefully support malaria elimination as a major goal in the near future.
Routine delivery of artemisinin-based combination treatment at fixed health facilities reduces malaria prevalence in Tanzania: an observational study
TLDR
The introduction of ACT at fixed health facilities only modestly reduced asexual parasitaemia prevalence, and it is unlikely to reduce malaria transmission substantially in much of sub-Saharan Africa where individuals are rapidly re-infected.
Analysis of clinical malaria disease patterns and trends in Vietnam 2009–2015
TLDR
Interventions (ITN distribution) and environmental factors (increased temperature) were associated with incidence of P. falciparum and P. vivax during the study period, and the data suggest distribution of resources can be targeted to areas and times of increased malaria transmission.
Review of delivery strategies for insecticide treated mosquito nets: are we ready for the next phase of malaria control efforts?
TLDR
The net distribution mechanisms in the included studies were categorized using an open system of six characteristics with the distribution channel serving as the primary descriptive element.
Reduction of transmission from malaria patients by artemisinin combination therapies: a pooled analysis of six randomized trials
TLDR
Treatment with ACT significantly reduces infectiousness of individual patients with uncomplicated falciparum malaria compared to previous first line treatments and rapid treatment of cases before gametocytaemia is well developed may enhance the impact of ACT on transmission.

Control of malaria: a successful experience from Viet Nam.
TLDR
A combination of ITBNs and EDT, provided free of charge, complemented by annual diagnosis and treatment during malaria surveys and community involvement with health education successfully brought malaria under control in an ethnic minority commune in the south of Viet Nam.
Impact of permethrin-treated bed nets on malaria, anemia, and growth in infants in an area of intense perennial malaria transmission in western Kenya.
TLDR
In areas of intense perennial malaria transmission, ITNs substantially reduce exposure to malaria and subsequent malaria-associated morbidity in children less than 24 months old, and Protective efficacy was greatest in infants less than three months old and similar in older infants and one-year-old children.
Impact of permethrin-treated bed nets on malaria and all-cause morbidity in young children in an area of intense perennial malaria transmission in western Kenya: cross-sectional survey.
TLDR
The ITNs substantially reduced malaria-associated morbidity and improved weight gain in young children in this area of intense perennial malaria transmission and was associated with significantly higher mean weight-for-age Z-scores and mid-upper arm circumferences.
Forest malaria in Vietnam: a challenge for control.
TLDR
The results confirm the major role played by forest activity on the malaria burden in this area and provide the basis for targeting control activities to forest workers.
Impact of permethrin-treated bed nets on entomologic indices in an area of intense year-round malaria transmission.
TLDR
The results indicate that ITNs are optimally effective if used every night and if permethrin is reapplied at least biannually, and that the efficacy of bed nets decreased if one or more residents did not sleep under a net or if bed nets had been re-treated within six months.
Impact of chloroquine resistance on malaria mortality.
Efficacy of permethrin-treated bed nets in the prevention of mortality in young children in an area of high perennial malaria transmission in western Kenya.
TLDR
It is shown that ITNs prevent approximately one in four infant deaths in areas of intense perennial malaria transmission, but their efficacy is compromised if re-treatment is delayed beyond six months.

TLDR
Passive case detection of clinical cases and serological follow‐up of newborns carried out in a larger population confirmed the low and decreasing trend of malaria transmission.
Control of malaria vectors: cost analysis in a province of northern Vietnam
TLDR
The cost of permethrin‐treated bednets was compared to the cost of residual spraying with lambdacyhalothrin 10% WP in Hoa Binh, a mountainous province in northern Vietnam, and the difference was smaller than expected.
