Malaria Intensifies in African Countries

Gains in fighting malaria in sub-Saharan Africa have left the highest risk for the disease concentrated in 10 countries

A study conducted by the Lancet medical journal has reported that gains in fighting malaria in sub-Saharan Africa have left the highest risk for the disease concentrated in ten countries.
 
According to the study, countries such as Nigeria, Democratic Republic of Congo, Uganda, Ivory Coast, Mozambique, Burkina Faso, Ghana, Mali, Guinea and Togo account for 87 percent of areas that have the highest prevalence of malaria.
 
The study further shows that financial support has risen from US$100 million annually to about US$2 billion since the launch of the Roll Back Malaria initiative in 2000.
