    Scientists Race to Contain Malaria: New Discoveries, More Resistance
    May 17, 2013 - Two new medical discoveries are raising hopes of containing malaria - the mosquito-borne parasitic disease that each year infects more than 200 million people and claims an estimated 660 thousand lives. Meantime, the World Health Organization is warning about dire consequences if a drug-resistant form of malaria spreads beyond southeast Asia.

    Study: Pregnant Women Not Gaining Access to Malaria Prevention
    July 23, 2013 - Malaria infections, primarily in sub-Saharan Africa, are responsible for the deaths of some 200,000 newborns and 10,000 new mothers each year. The parasitic illness can also cause miscarriage and premature birth, increasing the risk of death. There are low cost, lifesaving interventions to prevent infection, yet, according to a new study, there are significant barriers to implementing them.

    Thanks for the thread

    The Greenies demand things when they don't have the faintest idea of what the global consequences may be. Probably as many die from malaria as those in wars and terrorist attacks - the majority being the old and young.

    Mosquito-repellent Soap Invention Seeks to Fight Malaria in Africa
    May 12, 2016 — Two former students from Burkina Faso have designed a mosquito-repellent soap, which they hope could be a simple and affordable solution in the fight to end malaria, but more funds are needed to test the idea, according to the startup behind it.

    Study: Climate Change Not Expected to Boost Malaria in West Africa
    July 18, 2016 - Our climate is changing. And it is having significant effects on the world around us. From threats of extinction for many species to cities submerged in rising ocean waters, there are many concerns. But one important effect often gets lost in discussions of climate change’s impact: disease transmission. A new study, in Nature Climate Change, models the long-term effects of climate change on malaria transmission in West Africa. And for once, the results aren’t all bad.
