Malaria and mobility - posted by Barry Coleman on 2005-06-07
Dear AFM One of the factors that may be affecting Zimbabwe's outstanding performance in terms of access to malaria preventives and treatment may be the unusually, indeed unique, level of mobility on the part of public health workers such as environmental health technicians. Fourteen districts now have total mobility and every district has about one-third to one-half of its workers on motorcycles managed by Riders for Health. Working with the MHCW, we aim to have every single EHT in every single district mobile by the end of 2008. Then will will see what kind of impact mobility has on public health. All being well by then Zimbabwe will have resumed its normal place in the community of nations. Best wishes Barry Coleman

i think that the way this website is presented is too formal for the younger generation, in the use of education. it should include more information on the history of malaria and prevention. it should be regularly updated with more use of pictures and diagrams. it should also be alot less cramped together so it is easier to follow rather than boxes.

What exactly is being done to fight this and what can I do to help? I (like many others) are weary of giving money to help agencies, not knowing exactly where it goes(or more specifically 'who' it goes to). I am deeply concerened about the crisis is Africa, and am looking for answers on what the average citizen can do to help. I would like to contribute or start an effort to get nets to the African people and am looking for good sources to help or receive help in doing so. I do need to know for sure that the product is actually going straight to the people who need it and not to corporations or people looking to get rich off of someone elses tragedies.

I Concur - posted by Katherine on 2004-07-31
I had to do a thesis paper for my english class for the end of the year project and my teacher wanted it to be on something I was really passionate about. I chose DDT and its use in the fight against malaria. I agree that the financial and political pressure exerted on the countries of africa is totally contemptuous. Just because some little lady wrote a book blaming DDT for some bad things that were happening doesn't mean the whole world should jump on the band wagon and send useful insecticides like DDT on the road to damnation. We, the people that are passionate and open-minded, need to rise up and do something. Anybody got any good suggestions?

Sir I wish to suggest that instead insecticide, it better to use insect repellent.

I agree, more needs to be done to prevent malaria. The most cost effect way to do this is mass-distrubtion of bednets.
Malaria in Africa - posted by Vanessa Hicks and Andi Sipos on 2004-04-23
My friend Andi and I have been researching Malaria for a project, and I would just like to say that due to the extreme mortality rates of children I think more action is needed right now to stop the catastrophic death toll. All should be done by the African government and other countries of the world to aid Africa in the fight for their lives. We look forward to telling others about the Malaria situation in Africa and hope to bring about change. I, Andi would like to thank your reliable website for thanking you with our project.

DDT is not the answer - posted by Dr. Abou Bamba on 2004-04-14
This website is very interesting, and seems to promote DDT to fight malaria, but this is not the answer. DDT is a short term and out dated strategy. The agreements presented in this website for using DDT are misleading and neglect the health effects related to DDT use on Africans. I would recommend anyone interested in fighting malaria to research the success stories from Mexico and Vietnam. These countries have successfully implemented integrated vector control programs, which do not use DDT.
What can we, as individuals, do? - posted by Christina on 2004-02-21
I'm amazed the people make excuses for the folks who have the resources (and the duty) to bring basic sanitation, potable water, oral rehydration salts, and effective malaira programs to the world's poor, but who choose instead to throw condoms at them. "WHO does a lot of good!" Well, yeah, and Ted Bundy saved many lives working a suicide hotline and once rescued a todder from drowning. Some behaviors are inexcusable. Letting millions die when you have the resources to save them is inexcusable.

Papaya Leaf Tea as a malaria prophylaxis - posted by Sarah Otto on 2003-12-01
Have you seen any research on using Papaya Leaf Tea as a malaria prophylaxis? I have seen some intriguing research by Dr. David Drake who was in Ethiopia, I believe. They had tremendous success in preventing malaria among their workers with this simple tea.
