Once again media attention has been given to research that links DDT exposure to human harm. The latest study by Eskenazi et al. found a limited, perhaps transient association between DDT and neurodevelopment in children at 6, 12 and 24 months born to Mexican women who lived in California following exposure to agricultural uses of DDT in Mexico. The findings, based on a small sample population in one location, prompted the researchers to recommend that countries considering the use of DDT in malaria control should "weigh its benefit in eradicating malaria against the negative associations" found in their study. Africa Fighting Malaria rejects this conclusion and finds it both irresponsible and misleading.

Fund and USAID in blocking the use of DDT and thereby harming malaria
control, health & development in Uganda.
