Malaria, Dengue and Vector Control

Oxfam’s malaria and dengue programming promotes an evidence-based approach, targeting regions where malaria or dengue carries the greatest risk of mortality and morbidity. A malaria control project can be implemented as either part of a WASH project or as a stand-alone project. However, all WASH projects should adhere to vector control minimum standards by ensuring effective drainage of water - even if a specific malaria control element is not included.
