San José / Geneva, 11 June 2018 – The World Health Organization (WHO) today certified Paraguay as having eliminated malaria, the first country in the Americas to be granted this status since Cuba in 1973.
Executive Director of the Global Fund, we're excited to welcome Peter to Melbourne to speak at the 1st Malaria World Congress.
The countdown is on. There's still time to register. Join us from 1-5th July 2018 in Melbourne, Australia and be part of the engaged voices as we aim towards a Roadmap for the Future.

The Congress program has just been updated so visit the website today to see what we have to offer. Each of the four pillars are equally represented throughout the Congress, with sessions designed to provide the opportunity for discussion.
By integrating the many different facets that make up the response to the scourge of malaria in the one meeting, the 1st Malaria World Congress is utterly unique. Yes, MWC 2018 will feature the latest science, but it will be delivered within the context of the problems in implementing the best tools we have, the difficulties of financing them, and the cultural context of the many communities across the globe that are devastatingly impacted by malaria.
Ostracized for many years by Bigpharma-WHO-Gates, Artemisia and its incredible healing power now becomes a scoop.

Dr. Kenneth Staley has just been appointed as the new head of the US Presidential Malaria Initiative, succeeding Tim Ziemer who led the PMI for so many years. This is probably the most important position in global malaria control, and we wish Dr. Staley all the best.
Given that the drop in malaria prevalence in Nigeria has been very modest in the last 5 years, it would be wise to take another look at the methods being used - which unfortunately are ephemeral (indoor sprays, bednets and drugs) and must be repeated every year. The lack of emphasis on permanent measures, such as Larval Source Management, is a key to the problem. With the ephemeral methods, because the national budget for malaria control can only increase slowly, thus the program will only increase slowly.
Recently I published "Increased economic productivity after suppressing malaria transmission in 14 African countries" in the ejournal African Policy Journal, 2014 v9 Apr. This is a new journal run by students at Harvard Graduate School of Govt, and does not get picked up by the normal search engines, so I urge you to go to their website at African Policy Journal for their current articles.
