Tags: 

MESA (the Malaria Eradication Scientific Alliance) follows-up on the malERA agenda and provides a dedicated platform for the community in order to accelerate the translation of the science of malaria eradication for impact. With the community, MESA monitors progress and takes the next steps to advance the science of malaria eradication. MESA reviews existing evidence and supports projects on research questions critical to malaria eradication. For more information, please visit www.mesamalaria.org.

New from MESA: Tracking our research efforts to eradicate malaria

November 20, 2014 - 18:00 -- MESA Alliance

Over the past decades, Research and Development has played a key role in driving the achievements made against malaria with the development of tools such as rapid diagnostic tests (RDTs), artemisinin-combination therapies (ACTs) and long-lasting insecticide-treated nets (LLINs). We have also made great progress in our capacity to disseminate the scientific information to the malaria community; open access journals, webs, blogs, twitter, emails, conferences, publications, etc. However, one of the questions that remained pending was, “is it possible to track all current research projects focused on malaria elimination and eradication?”

Two major problems with WHO Chemical Dependency Pathway to Malaria Suppression

Although these problems do not have much significance in the Environmental Pathway to Malaria Suppression described in my previous blog, they are two major problems for folks following the WHO Chemical Dependency Pathway. They are:

Successful Environmental Pathway to Permanent Malaria Suppression

Although I have presented these ideas previously, I found a new way of explaining the concepts which I hope you will find easier to understand, or to disagree with!

THE SUCCESSFUL ENVIRONMENTAL PATHWAY TO PERMANENT MALARIA SUPPRESSION

Are Artemisia annua plantations killing fields?

November 5, 2014 - 18:29 -- Pierre Lutgen

Artemisia annua has strong allelopathic properties as was documented by Mediplant for the high artemisinin hybrid. In other words the plant becomes invasive and inhibits the growth of other plants or cash crop on fields where Artemisia has been planted for the extraction of artemisinin by Bigpharma.

With WHO's blessing Keasling's synthetic artemisinin replaces the natural product: an economical disaster for African families who have invested all their meager resources in Artemisia annua plantations, lured by the promise of big profits.
