[Correspondence] Chinese action towards global malaria eradication

To coincide with World Malaria Day, The Lancet published a Review by Gretchen Newby and colleagues (April 23, p 1775–84),1 in which they analyse the current status of the 35 malaria-eliminating countries including China, indicating the feasibility and challenges of global malaria eradication. Because of the drastic decrease of malaria morbidity between 2006–09, the Ministry of Health in China issued the Chinese Malaria Elimination Action Plan (2010–2020).2 In this ambitious plan, the goal of malaria elimination in China will be achieved by 2020 (ie, no indigenous cases by 2017).
