This paper presents an optimal control model for malaria resistant to antimalarial drugs. Optimal control measures included: control on the use of mosquito nets to prevent contact with mosquitoes, treatments, and spraying mosquitoes with insecticides as a system variable. The application was performed with the fourth-order Runge-Kutta approach. The strategy of using a set of optimal controls was found significantly more effective to reduce the number of individuals infected and mosquito vectors, compared to the optimal control separately.
