Recommendations for Malaria Control Policy in Sub-Saharan Africa
AbstractBillions of dollars each year are dedicated to malaria control policy at great cost to the donating agencies and countries. This paper outlines the primary sources of that funding and the methods by which it is used. The Web sites for these funding agencies: The Global Fund, The President’s Malaria Initiative and Malaria No More provide much of the data for this study. Information from the United States Center for Disease Control, the World Health Organization, and several books on the history of the malaria parasite provide this investigation’s epidemiological foundation. This paper offers alternatives to the current funding practices, such as moving production of malaria control supplies to Africa and increasing collaboration between funding agencies. These suggestions will reduce the number of malaria cases while stimulating the economies of the affected Sub-Saharan nations.
