Malaria-elimination program in West-seram District based on the guidelines of the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Indonesia and operationally outlined in the form of a technical guide. Case surveillance has not been carried out. Malaria vector control was done by eradicating mosquito nests and using mosquito nets containing insecticides. Cross-program and cross-program cooperation had been going well, but cross-sectoral collaboration, still needs to be improved.
