We Can Defeat Malaria (04/17/2015)


The theme for World Malaria Day 2015 is Invest in the Future, Defeat Malaria. While at face value this might seem like an obvious declaration, in the fight against this relentless killer of an estimated 584,000 each year, significant investments in improved prevention, diagnosis and treatment can mean the difference between life and death.

APMEN VII: Vietnam demonstrates strengthened regional commitment for a malaria-free Asia Pacific by 2030 (03/28/2015)

Vietnam signals greater regional leadership in malaria elimination by hosting health officials and experts to discuss challenges to achieving a malaria-free Asia Pacific by 2030. o­n 25-27 March 2015, Vietnam hosted Ministry of Health officials from the Asia Pacific Malaria Elimination Network (APMEN); a group of 17 countries in Asia Pacific who each share the ultimate goal to become malaria-free. Last year at the East Asia Summit meeting in Myanmar, leaders from 18 Asia Pacific countries, including Vietnam's Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung, decisively committed to the goal of an Asia-Pacific free of malaria in the next 15 years. With expanded leadership and financing, bothVietnam and other Asia-Pacific nations, may reach that goal even sooner.

A "pretty good" malaria vaccine is o­n track to be the first to market. It o­nly prevents infection about o­ne-quarter to o­ne-half the time, so it’s not as good as most vaccines. But for a disease like malaria, which kills 600,000 people a year, "pretty good" may be good enough. GlaxoSmithKline has applied for regulatory approval for its RTS,S vaccine.
