Myanmar aims to be malaria-free by 2030. Malaria elimination strategies have shown successes such as a decline in the mortality, morbidity and incidence rate and meeting the malaria MDGs in 2004. Despite progress, Myanmar still accounts for more than half of malaria cases and about three-quarters of malaria deaths in the region. Stronger malaria elimination strategies are necessary to target growing artemisinin resistance, increasing population migration from non-endemic to endemic areas, and counterfeit and standard antimalarial medicine usage. Political stability, particularly at the border areas, is crucial for the success of malaria control and elimination in Myanmar.
