6. Antimalarial treatment policy

National antimalarial treatment policies should aim to offer antimalarials that are highly effective. The main determinant of policy change is the therapeutic efficacy and the consequent effectiveness of the antimalarial in use. Other important determinants include: changing patterns of malaria-associated morbidity and mortality; consumer and provider dissatisfaction with the current policy; and the availability of new products, strategies and approaches.
