Malaria is at a crossroads. Newly available data has revised estimates of past prevalence higher, but the trendline is the same: more than a decade of progress with an uncertain future ahead.

we need to increase funding; optimize the use of current tools; and take advantage of emerging surveillance, modeling, and next-generation bed nets.
