The film below was submitted to MalariaWorld by Dr. Pierre Lutgen.
On several occasions Patrick Ogwang from Uganda and Pierre Lutgen from Luxemburg have informed us on encouraging developments with herbal medicine in Africa, more particularly Artemisia annua. The film shows the program of the Makerere University sponsored by the Ministry of Health of Uganda.
MalariaWorld featured a poll titled: Should Artemisia annua (wormwood) tea be used as a prophylactic in endemic countries? We received a response from 156 MalariaWorld members, of which 29% (45) were in favour, yet 111 (79%) against.
What do you think after seeing this film? Comments welcome.
