Irrational exuberance for malaria elimination?

My critique of strategy and equity in plans discussed so far:

Recent dialogue around malaria elimination is laden with implicit assumptions. While the elimination of malaria may be both feasible and equitable in a few areas, globally: 1) the control tools which successfully reduce malaria burden may not be sufficient to interrupt transmission over long periods of time, and 2) a malaria elimination strategy may inadvertently increase inequity.

You can find the rest of the essay Assessing Strategy and Equity in the Elimination of Malaria in the latest issue of PLoS Medicine (open access!)
