    Vector Control has been our ‘Go-to’ primary tool against malaria for more than a century, but as countries get closer to Elimination and pockets of Residual Malaria frustrate our historic default approaches to combat malaria, we need to engage in more subtle and locally-targeted tactics. Pockets of sustained low-grade transmission need to be identified, an understanding developed of the specific causes perpetuating such transmission, and focal interventions targeting such gaps implemented. In these three presentations we look at different aspects of such a targeted, focal approach to addressing residual malaria to reach Elimination.
