Malaria remains a public health problem in Indonesia, therefore, a study was conducted to guarantee a reduction in malaria cases and to support an elimination program. This study aims to determine the patternof vector control in malaria-endemic areas of Central Java Province from August to December 2016, through searching of reports and articles on malaria vector control. Malaria eradication efforts that were carried out included curative treatment and preventive action, by controlling the vector. Meanwhile, malaria vector control in Central Java Province from 2011 to 2015, includes insecticide-treated mosquito nets, larvae fish spreading, repellent use, indoor residual spraying, and larviciding. However, several obstacles to malaria vector control include, increase in the number of breeding sites, population movements from malaria endemic areas, presence of imported cases, geographic condition, attitude and behavior of people, policy differences in governance, and insufficient control budgets. Malaria is always present in Central Java Province, due to differences in vector control programme, mode of control, time, and budget. Therefore, malaria vector control policies depend on legislation, local regulation, cross-sectoral budget, support, and contribution.
Key words: pattern / vector control / malaria endemic area
