Serology use cases to help malaria elimination: new publication

This report just published synthesizes discussions that took place at the Institut Pasteur in Paris in 2017, aimed at defining practical and informative use cases for serology applications in malaria. It highlights five programmatic uses for serological assays including: documenting the absence of transmission; stratification of transmission; measuring the effect of interventions; informing a decentralized immediate response; and testing and treating P. vivax hypnozoite carriers.
