Open access Cochrane Reviews of malaria interventions

April 8, 2014 - 15:42 -- Dee Walshe

Hello,

Recently, we at the Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group (CIDG) have published several systematic reviews of malaria interventions which may be of interest to Malaria World members. Each of the reviews are open access and are listed below:

• Mass drug administration for malaria

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD008846.pub2/abstract

• Larvivorous fish for preventing malaria transmission

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD008090.pub2/abstract

• Dihydroartemisinin-piperaquine for treating uncomplicated malaria

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD010927/abstract

• Artesunate plus pyronaridine for treating uncomplicated Plasmodium falciparum malaria

http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/14651858.CD006404.pub2/abstract

While searching the Malaria World website for Cochrane Reviews, we noticed that these and other Cochrane Reviews are not included in the Malaria World newsletter or website. We would appreciate if the Malaria World team could clarify how it identifies recently published malaria articles for inclusion in its newsletter. If CIDG would like Malaria World members to be aware of new and updated Cochrane Protocols and Reviews, should we contact someone in the Malaria World team directly?

Best wishes,

Dee Walshe
