An eradication effort that began more than 50 years ago on the basis of one insecticide (DDT) and one antimalarial drug (chloroquine), resulted in regional successes, but did not achieve global eradication of the disease. Currently, a renewed interest in the possibility of eliminating disease at the global level has driven the eradication of malaria to the top of the global public health agenda. The development of new interventions and the redeployment of existing interventions, enabled by an infusion of political will and resources have fostered the belief that malaria eradication can be achieved once and for all.
