The re-emergence of malaria has become a major public health issue during national malaria elimination program in Indonesia. The receptivity status of Malaria is the key to its re-establishment. A cross-sectional entomological study was carried out to assess the potential of malaria re-introduction and evaluate the feasibility of malaria elimination in Indonesia by 2030. The aim of this study is to analyze the presence of receptivity to Malaria by using a large dataset in Indonesia. This study is based on the data from the National research of Vectors (Rikhus Vektora) obtained between 2015 to 2018 organized by the Institute for Vector and Reservoir Control Research and Development, National Institute of Health Research and Development, Ministry of Health Indonesia. The data used in this study include malaria elimination status from 27 study sites throughout 9 provinces in Indonesia. Mosquitoes caught were identified and examined for their plasmodium by using Polymerization Chain Reaction test. The results of this study reveal that Anopheles species, which os confirmed as a malaria vector, are found in all of the regencies. Only 2 (7.41%) of the 27 regencies in the last 2 years not report malaria cases, ignore both imports and indigenous. As many as 17 regencies (62.96%) of the 27 regencies are certified as malaria elimination areas. As many as 6 (22.22%) regencies are identified to have malaria plasmodium. There are still risks for malaria transmission due to the presence of malaria cases, vectors, and plasmodium. Sustained entomological surveillance and cases surveillance are strongly recommended for pre-elimination and elimination of malaria.
