Malaria erradication program



Malaria is one of the life threatening diseases for the people live in tropical and sub-tropical area, especially infants, toddlers, child and pregnant women. Worldwide every year 500 millions cases are found all over the world which takes lives of 1 million people. According to the Survei Kesehatan Rumah Tangga (SKRT) 2001, 70 millions people live in malaria endemic area in Indonesia. Approximately 56,3 million of them live in the moderate to high endemic area with 15 million clinical malaria cases each year. Malaria eradication program has been held for a long period of time, yet the endemic area widen in the last couple years. Malaria outbreak even took place in the area that previously had overcome malaria. By the year 2003, malaria spread in 6053 villages in 226 municipals of 30 provinces. This condition worsened by the widening of chloroquine and even fansidar resistant area. Malaria immunochrommatography test shows remarkable sensitivity and specificity in diagnosing plasmodium antigenemia. This test is at least shows as good result as malaria microscopic examination by skillful microscopist. The advantage of the test is its ability to diagnose plasmodium antigen quickly and accurately. Another advantage is its ease of use that makes it possible to be carried out by everyone. This will be very useful for areas that lack of skillful microscopist. Diagnostic test using immunochrommatography method has been developed by Yayasan Hati Sehat West Nusa Tenggara Hepatitis Laboratory, Mataram to
diagnose malaria and identify the Plasmodium species. The test has been helpful
in diagnosing and treating malaria quickly and accurately and it might also
facilitate to follow up of patient’s condition after administration of antimalarial drugs.
This will enable doctors to give alternative treatment once they know that the
treatment fails to bring the expected result. This innovation has started being
applied by the School of Medicine, Mataram University in supporting malaria
eradication program which is being carried out in the Sub districts of Jerowaru and
Keruak, District of East Lombok.

• Breaking the malaria chain of transmission • Enhancing the effectivity of malaria treatment • Developing malaria surveillance system FRAMEWORK

Case Detection
Case detection using active case finding approach will be carried out by teams called Juru Malaria Desa. They will trace the suspect in the village based on the
clinical symptoms suffered by the suspect. They will also take blood smear of the
suspect and, if possible, blood smears of inhabitants of five neighbouring houses
around the suspect’s residence. This step will be followed by microscopic and
immunochrommatographic examination in Puskesmas to detect the present of
malaria antigen in the suspect’s blood.
Case Management
Based on the result of the blood smear done in the previous step, the positive results group will have another test to identify the Plasmodium species causing the
disease, whether it is P falciparum, P vivax or mixed. The appropriate treatment
will be given by doctor in the primary health care and private health care based on
the specific Plasmodium species. The next step will be the identification of the
efficacy and resistance of Plasmodium to the given antimalarial drugs. The result
of the treatment will be monitored by blood smear and immunochrommatographic
test several days after radical treatment.
Prevention will be done by controlling the vector of transmission. Extermination of Anopheles mosquitoes will break the life cycle of the vector
hence will control the transmission of disease. The vector control can be done by
insecticides, natural predator of mosquitoes, like carper in river and lagoon, and
minimizing the breeding places. Chemoprophylaxis drug will also act as a
preventive measure.
Surveillance is a continuous registration of malaria cases from time to time. It can act as a mean of early detection of malaria outbreak. It can also be used in
the evaluation of malaria eradication program in Lombok.
Components involved in the program are: 1) Local Community 2) Community leaders (particularly religious leaders) as the PROMOTOR of 3) Government through District Office of Health and “Puskesmas” (Center of Community Health) as the RESPONSIBLE Institutions of the program 4) Academic Staff of the School of Medicine, Mataram University for the RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT of the program 5) Mass media and non-government organizations for the SOCIALIZATION &
Action Plan

The activities in the Malaria Eradication Program would be mainly based on innovative collaboration of community, clinical and laboratory works. The first
stage of the malaria eradication program is identification of the currently running
activities of malaria eradication program in Jerowaru and Keruak Sub districts and
building partnership with all components involved in the programs. Active case
finding can be achieved by creating and training malaria cadres, and also by
increasing the performance of Puskesmas as the primary health care.
The next step is advocating the community and community leader to perform
vector control. The following steps are socializing and advocating the community
about the importance of the community involvement in the malaria eradication
First Year Activities
In this malaria eradication program, the School of Medicine, Mataram University received fund and diagnostic kits from Yayasan Hati Sehat West Nusa Tenggara Laboratory, Mataram; Vista Laboratory, Seattle, USA; and J. Mitra Laboratory, New Delhi, India. The innovative results achieved in the laboratory setting would be implemented in the community setting in this first year activities. The steps are: 1) Building partnership with District Office of Health, private practitioners, local government official and community in malaria eradication program. 2) Active case finding by training paramedics in malaria examination and Performing follow up to the positive group on 3rd, 7th, and 10th day after treatment to find the antigen persistence using immunochrommatographic test and to find the possibility of resistance.
Basic Parameters
Indicators of success • Annual Blood Examination Rate – ABER • Slide Positive Rate–SPR and/or Immunochromatographic PositiveRate
