Africa Fighting Malaria
In response to the BBC's report that clinical trials in Cambodia have uncovered evidence of drug resistance as a result of poor case management, Oxfam released a press release cautioning that the AMFm's use of the private sector for antimalarial drug distribution could lead to "misdiagnosis and mistreatment," thereby contributing to the spread of drug resistance. On this same day, an article was published on guardian.co.uk, suggesting that the AMFm "is the world's best chance of eradicating the scourge of malaria once and for all."
