Artemisia afra irreversibly cures tuberculosis

November 16, 2021 - 21:19 -- Pierre Lutgen

Early this year we published the results of 15 case studies. In 2020 15 patients infected by tuberculosis had been cured after 3 weeks of administration of Artemisia afra infusions, alone or in combination with the WHO prescribed drugs.

Meanwhile in several countries of the Great Lakes, the tuberculosis of some 30 additional patients has been cured, mostly by Artemisia afra alone.

End Malaria Faster: U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative Strategy 2021–2026

November 11, 2021 - 13:33 -- Malaria World

On October 6, 2021, the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative is launching its next strategy for 2021 – 2026, titled “End Malaria Faster”. PMI’s strategy aims to greatly reduce malaria deaths and cases in countries that account for 80 percent of the world’s malaria burden — contributing to the global goals of saving more than 4 million lives and averting over 1 billion cases by 2025.

Over the next five years, PMI aims to save lives, reduce health inequities, and improve disease surveillance and global health security. With partners, PMI will maximize program efficiency by addressing five focus areas; reach the unreached, strengthen community health systems, keep malaria services resilient, invest locally, and innovate and lead.
