The continued success of efforts to reduce the global malaria burden will require sustained funding for interventions specifically targeting . The optimal use of limited financial resources necessitates cost and cost-effectiveness analyses of strategies for diagnosing and treating and vector control tools. Herein, we review the existing published evidence on the costs and cost-effectiveness of interventions for controlling , identifying nine studies focused on diagnosis and treatment and seven studies focused on vector control. Although many of the results from the much more extensive literature can be applied to , it is not always possible to extrapolate results from –specific cost-effectiveness analyses. Notably, there is a need for additional studies to evaluate the potential cost-effectiveness of radical cure with primaquine for the prevention of relapses with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase testing.
