I feel that we should start a conversation about coordination. I attended Malaria Day here in Baltimore last week, and one still hears people speaking as if all we have to do is send more nets to Africa! Africa is swimming in nets, in fact there are NO plans that one hears of to REPLACE (key word) expended of torn nets in anything but an ad hoc manner. Yet Anopheles funestus (resistant to pyrethoids) is appearing all over Eastern and Southern Africa.
One could go on.. but anyone of us malariologists working in the field will know what I mean. I would like to se what others feel, as I think we should start to think of a global oversight to keep things on track.
Any ideas (I have some, but it would be nice to hear others first!)
