Unfortunately malaria transmission in Africa is often assessed using routine administrative reports from local health units, which are plagued by sporadic reporting failures. It is unfortunate that WHO is also trying to plan and evaluate its malaria control efforts based on these same kinds of inadequate administrative reports.

Malaria Eradication: How Realistic Is It?

November 10, 2009 - 17:53 -- Fredros Okumu

Following the Bill and Melinda Gates declaration in 2007 that malaria eradication is their lifeterm goal, nearly every researcher and policy maker thinks this is feasible. The WHO has also made this a long term global target. I believe this agenda is too immature to be impemented in many malaria endemic countries, most of which are developing still. It will likely lead to imbalanced resource allocation for managing many other different diseases.
