The Court has ordered “We direct the State of Nagaland to formulate a comprehensive State Action Plan for eradication of malaria by way of anti malarial measures as per the national norms as formulated by the NVBDCP, Malaria Drug Policy (2007) and National Policy on Malaria for giving the direction to achieve the object of preserving the human life from the scourge of malaria which has resurged in this Region.

It is further directed that under the State Action Plan, a high power monitoring body has to be created to oversee the activities under the State Action Plan and to make emergent or remedial measures without bureaucratic sluggishness. While constituting the said high power monitoring body, representatives from the Non-Governmental Organisation or voluntary action groups (NGOs) working in the field is inducted so as to harness people’s participation in the State Action Plan.
