This document describes a methodology for continual assessment of the impact of malaria interventions, and the efficiency of the malaria programme. The methodology is designed to be implemented recurrently on a cycle of 2–5 years, with the involvement of stakeholders, including National Malaria Control Programmes, development partners and other organizations active in the programme. Their participation should inform the impact and efficiency assessment, so that it is linked to subsequent decision making defining the nature and scope of malaria control interventions. The methodology is designed in a modular way, providing some flexibility with regard to which elements are implemented at any given time. Some modules require technical capabilities usually not available in a regular monitoring and evaluation (M&E) team, and will require contributions from other national and/or international partners.
