Abstract

Background: Malaria still occurs in Manipur which is a state in the north-eastern part of India.

Materials and Methods: For the present study, Manipur’s Malaria incidence and it’s strategic elimination program was taken into consideration based on all the available online data.

Results: The Annual Parasite Incidence (API) of Malaria for Manipur had been observed to be decreasing from 2012 till 2018 when it reached 0.00.

Conclusions: Although Manipur did not reach zero Malaria cases in 2018, it is a good candidate for being the first state or union territory in the country to be able to achieve near-elimination goals since no other state or union territory achieved zero API in 2018.

Keywords: Malaria, annual parasite incidence, health policy administration
