Uptake of malaria interventions remains woefully low, despite good evidence that they are both effective and highly cost-efficient. This publication uses economic analysis to review knowledge on why this is the case. Influences on patient behaviour (demand) and the range of public and private providers (supply) are assessed to identify factors that limit the availability and effective use of malaria interventions, and the opportunities to improve both treatment and prevention.
