Africa: Malaria Still a Major Challenge in Africa – WHO
Published on : Tuesday, July 29, 2008
With Africa having over a million cases of malaria every year, malaria is being a global threat and affecting Africa socially and economically. WHO stated that African countries are loosing about $12 billion of their GDP to malaria intervention programs. They need to figure out more stable programme, which will have a larger and greater effect thus investing less, and less money, reports BuaNews.
Malaria and the politics of disease
Published on : Thursday, April 10, 2008

But every so often, one of those previously neglected issues breaks through to the point where it can no longer be ignored by the rich and powerful. Political momentum behind efforts to tackle malaria, which causes or contributes to several million deaths a year, seems rather feeble. One reason for this is that malaria has no obvious lobby to campaign for it in the corridors of power, notes the Economist
