Quick malaria links

  • Malaria articles on Karen Grepin’s blog – while only a few malaria dedicated blogs exist, some development and health blogs have a nice collection of posts including this one.
  • Assessment of malaria elimination in Zanzibar (old news) – even with a balanced outlook will it guide future actions – or are those predetermined by who’s paying for what?
  • Estimating malaria infections among pediatric fevers in Africa – good for forecasting drug supply. Why isn’t there more sensitivity analysis of model assumptions? This should be a prominent piece of such research. Note: there are one-way analyses of a few parameters buried in supplement three.
  • The rise and fall of Lapdap (chloroproguanil -dapsone, previously discussed here, hat tip: Matt Price) – a great story with key lessons for drug development.
