APPMG launches new report on malaria elimination26 February 2010
London, 26 February: The All Party Parliamentary Group on Malaria and Neglected Tropical Diseases (APPMG)
has published a new report which attempts to ‘take stock’ of progress on malaria control.
In its sixth report entitled Control of Malaria 2005-15: Progress and Priorities towards Eradication
, the APPMG considers what still needs to be done if elimination of malaria in certain countries is to be achieved.
Stephen O’Brien, chairman of the APPMG, noted in his foreword, “This report aims to ensure that there is a greater understanding of both the challenge and the opportunity to control malaria and the enormous encouragement we can take from the progress that has been made over the last five years given the focus that has been brought to bear.”
Launched in the House of Commons, the report was endorsed by World Health Organization
Director-General, Dr Margaret Chan, and authored by Professor David Schellenberg, Professor of Malaria and International Health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
