With the adoption of the Global Malaria Action Plan, several countries are moving from malaria control towards
elimination and eradication. However, the sustainability of some of the approaches taken may be questionable.
Here, an overview of malaria control and elimination strategies is provided and the sustainability of each in context
of vector- and parasite control is assessed. From this, it can be concluded that transdisciplinary approaches are
essential for sustained malaria control and elimination in malaria-endemic communities.
