Lack of Information Hampers Malaria Fight

According to a new study, some 60 percent of countries where malaria is endemic lack solid information about the quality of available drugs to treat the deadly disease.
 
The study, published in the Malaria Journal in April, looked at 251 reports from 104-malaria endemic countries since 1946, and found that of the 43 countries that had some information about anti-malarial quality, more than half of these - 25 -  had only one or two published reports available.
 

SA, Mexico, Push for Locally-Made Vaccines

The 67th World Health Assembly (WHA) in Switzerland has heard that Mexico and South Africa want to start producing their own vaccines to boost their immunisation programmes.

The countries need the World Health Organisation (WHO) and other international agencies to help expand their local manufacturing capacity, a move they hope will lower the cost of vaccines and make their supply more reliable.

Health Minister, Aaron Motsoaledi, states that, "We want the WHO and other international agencies to empower us to produce our vaccines."
