Structural Adjustment Programmes (SAPs) (restrictive fiscal and monetary policies and extensive public sector reforms) were implemented in many developing countries during the 1980s. Their socio-economic impact on the poor has been widely discussed. Antimalarial efforts could have been affected by this economic reform process, and the resurgence of malaria during the past twenty years could be partially attributed to the socio-economic hardship generated by these programmes.
