HIV Response Strategies Key to Tackling Malaria

Swaziland's minister of health and social welfare calls for lessons learned from the HIV response in Southern Africa to be applied to the response to malaria

Swaziland's minister of health and social welfare, Sibongile Ndlela-Simelane, has called for lessons learned from the HIV response in Southern Africa to be applied to the response to malaria.

Speaking on World Malaria Day (25 April 2015) in Livingstone, Zambia, Simelane emphasised the need for early diagnostic and treatment systems to combat malaria in the border areas of Southern Africa, just as has been done in the mitigation of HIV and AIDS.

She added that community health workers, commonly referred to as foot soldiers in the work to tackle HIV and AIDS, should also be used in the fight against malaria.
