Abstract: Malaria was one for the most serious communicable diseases in China. Following the concerted efforts for decades, remarkable achievements have been gained for malaria control in China. Since the national malaria elimination programme was initiated in China in 2010, local malaria transmission was rapidly interrupted, with zero indigenous malaria case reported for the first time in the country in 2017, and the country will undergo the certification of malaria elimination by WHO. Currently, however, malaria remains hyper?endemic across the world. In China, there are more than 2 000 overseas imported malaria cases each year, and prevention of re?establishment of imported malaria will become the major task in future malaria control activities. Hereby, we analyze the main challenges in the prevention of re?establishment of imported malaria in China, and propose the corresponding countermeasures, so as to provide insights into the consolidation of malaria elimination achievements.
