Ghana, Africa is currently listed among the top fifteen malaria burdened countries across the globe (WHO, 2019). While developed nations around the world have deemed malaria of no concern, third world countries continue to battle rising case and mortality rates each year. The purpose of this literature review is to determine which method of prevention proves most effective against malaria transmission and why recognized prevention methods are lacking in accessibility to the residents of Ghana. Peer-reviewed primary sources published between the years of 2015 and 2021 were utilized in this study. In order to be considered for review, sources located needed to include Ghana, malaria, and mosquito control. The result of this study found that not one malaria prevention method reigns superior amongst others. Additionally, prevention measures remain readily accessible to all residents in Ghana; however, consistent and continued use of these measures remains a sizable issue. A combination of prevention methods alongside measures to ensure continued use is vital in order to effectively reduce and eradicate malaria in Ghana.
