Malaria Vaccine Technology Roadmap

Scientists have been working for decades to develop a preventive malaria vaccine. While they have successfully demonstrated that such a vaccine is possible, many challenges continue to impede progress on the road to an effective malaria vaccine. As a result, the Malaria Vaccine Advisory Committee to the World Health Organization (WHO), coordinated by the WHO Initiative for Vaccine Research, called for a collective effort to explore and address the challenges. This effort resulted in the Malaria Vaccine Technology Roadmap process.

Mapping the Standards of Care at Microbicide Clinical Trial Sites

In 2006, the Global Campaign for Microbicides embarked on an exercise to map the standards of care and prevention provided to participants in late-stage microbicide trials. The resulting report provides an independent assessment of the health care and prevention services provided to women in the trials (and to some extent, their partners, family, and surrounding community), explores the factors that inform care-related decisions at trial sites, and offers recommendations to strengthen the HIV prevention research field’s ability to respond to care-related challenges in the future.

Mathematical Modelling to Support Malaria Control and Elimination

​This report, part of the Roll Back Malaria Progress & Impact Series, provides an overview of mathematical modelling, explains its history in relation to epidemiology and malaria, and details its implications and uses for global and national malaria control and elimination planning. The report aims to expand the dialogue within the global malaria community—and among public health decision-makers in particular—on when and how mathematical modelling can help inform malaria control programs and policies.

MDR-TB Planning Toolkit

The MDR-TB Planning Toolkit is designed to help countries develop or strengthen a multidrug-resistant tuberculosis (MDR-TB) component within their national TB strategy or plan. Eight tools contain worksheets to assist the user through key planning steps. The toolkit is available as a Microsoft Word file (for users who wish to modify it) and as an Adobe PDF file (recommended for printing). The worksheets can be filled out on the screen using the full toolkit or the worksheets-only version. The Excel version of Tool 2 has built-in formulas that also generate graphs to show a country’s baseline performance and targets for MDR-TB case detection, enrollment, and successful treatment. (The 2009 MDR/XDR-TB Assessment and Monitoring Tool can be found here.)

MDR/XDR-TB Assessment and Monitoring Tool

The MDR/XDR-TB Assessment and Monitoring Tool was designed to help national tuberculosis program staff, consultants, and donors conduct a baseline assessment for use in preparing a plan or funding application, monitoring progress, or identifying needs for technical assistance. It addresses two key questions: are there high-priority gaps in the DOTS program that must be corrected to prevent the development of cases of multidrug-resistant/extensively drug-resistant (MDR/XDR-TB), and what high-priority areas should be addressed to improve diagnosis and treatment of MDR/XDR-TB? The tool is available in English, Russian, and Spanish as a Microsoft Word file (for users who wish to modify it) and as an Adobe PDF file (recommended for printing). This 2009 tool informed the 2012 MDR-TB Planning Toolkit, which can be found here.

Microfinance and Women's Health: What Do We Know? (Outlook, vol. 28, no. 1)

This issue of Outlook reviews the evidence base for microfinance approaches to improve and address women’s health. It begins with background on the microfinance sector and links between microfinance and health. Interventions and approaches focused on family planning, women’s health services utilization and access (including health financing mechanisms), and HIV prevention are discussed. The issue concludes with suggested operational considerations for integration and priorities for future research. Some positive experiences with microfinance and women’s health signify that this area merits increased attention, yet more evidence of impact is needed.
