Hello all,

We've had a good start to the new year here at the Cochrane Infectious Diseases Group (, with one new Cochrane Review and one new Cochrane Protocol published, which may be of interest to Malaria World members.

2015, Issue 1 (Cochrane Reviews and Protocols published 1 to 31 January 2015):

Malaria treatment was considered by many to be superior in Nigeria and Ghana than in the UK. A conceptual framework was developed to illustrate the manner in which these factors interact to affect malaria decisions.

National Audit Office Report: Malaria

“Global spending on the fight to tackle malaria is peaking, despite an increasing contribution from the UK. The risk is that the progress made so far will stall and that there will be a rapid resurgence of the disease. The Department’s bilateral programmes use proven interventions, such as providing bed nets, and funding the introduction of rapid diagnostic tests and the distribution of drugs. But sustained improvement will crucially depend on changing the attitudes and behaviour of the populations at risk. It is important that the Department influence the governments of countries receiving malaria aid so that their efforts to tackle the disease match its own rising spending.” - Amyas Morse, head of the National Audit Office, 3 July 2013
