Last week at MalariaWorld: Report Jerusalem meeting and Cochrane reviews...

July 24, 2014 - 21:50 -- Bart G.J. Knols
This week we publish the full report of the Jerusalem meeting that was held from 8-12 December 2013. In it all the details (and fireworks!) that hopefully will arouse interest from the broader malaria community. If we are to eliminate and eventually eradicate malaria the report contains opinionated views that will surely be of interest to our readers...
Last week's column on passive transportation of mosquitoes in public transport was a very well-read contribution with 799 reads. Comments were quite a few. Now, wouldn't you like to see your voice, ideas, views, or opinions viewed by almost 800 malaria professionals within a week? Send us your story to and we will help you publish it. Moreover, your story will be send out to 8400 professionals around the world, in the weekly newsletter that goes out by email... If you want to talk to the global malaria community, then MalariaWorld is the place to be. So let's hear from you...
This week's column is again highly thought-provoking. From the hand of Dr. Manuel Lluberas who writes in an intriguing way about historical malaria control and the holy Cochrane reviews we all read today. Tell us what you think about that!
For those having a vacation this month or in August, here's a suggestion: Read the new book by James Webb Jr. titled: The long struggle against malaria in tropical Africa. I have nearly finished it, but can very highly recommend it! This is an excellent book that should be read by us will give you a lot to think about. I will review it during my vacation and you will read the review in the MalariaWorld Journal. Better still, buy it before then. You will not regret it!
Enjoy this week's MalariaWorld - the MW team.

Hi editorial folk: I have not seen the MJ article by David Nygren and others (Nygren et al. Malaria Journal 2014, 13:231 reported in the Malaria World list (it came out about 3 weeks ago). It relates to the measurement of dew point in the air through the use of MODIS satellites and the association of this information with incidence of malaria measures in high moderate and low transmission areas, in Southern Zambia. I would like to see what others think about this as it may help defining potential and actual "hot spots" of transmission.
