[Correspondence] Chinese action towards global malaria eradication – Authors’ reply

We thank Jin Chen and Ning Xiao for their Correspondence highlighting the exciting progress China has made toward achieving malaria elimination. As they mention, the drastic reduction in cases over the past few decades to just 56 in 2014 is remarkable and inspiring. The enabling factors for elimination that we feature in our Review1—including national-level political and financial commitment, ongoing collaboration with malaria-endemic neighbours through regional initiatives, and rigorous surveillance and response activities—are all very well represented in China, and have certainly contributed to their recent success.
