Lack of Information Hampers Malaria Fight

Some 60 percent of countries where malaria is endemic lack solid information about the quality of available drugs to treat the deadly disease, says a new report

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.
 
"Estimates of anti-malarial quality vary widely depending on the sampling methodology used, with most reports not employing rigorous scientific techniques, potentially biasing results," says the reports.
