[Editorial] The next chapter in malaria eradication

The narrative around combating malaria has long been equal parts optimism and pessimism. Remarkably, it was only a decade ago that Bill and Melinda Gates made the game-changing call for the eradication of malaria. Previous control efforts to reduce the burden, particularly in low-resource, malaria-endemic countries in sub-Saharan Africa, were limited by poor access to tools such as insecticide-treated nets, and faced rapidly drug-resistant strains of the highly lethal Plasmodium falciparum parasite requiring treatment with costly artemisinin-combination therapies.
