Session: Malaria: History, Equity, and Prevention
4234.0: Tuesday, November 07, 2006: 2:30 PM-4:00 PM
Malaria: History, Equity, and Prevention
Malaria is the single largest preventable cause of child mortality and morbidity in Sub-Saharan Africa. However despite gradually increasing focus on the problem by the Global Fund and more recently by the US Government through the Presidentís Malaria Initiative, there is little progress in achieving even the simple goals laid out in Abuja. In this session we look at some specifics related to the political history of Malaria and then go on to examine specific measures taken at national and household levels.
