Blog for the artemisinin resistance containment project

We’ve talked about the looming threat of artemisinin-resistant malaria and its spread before (here and here). Well the Gates Foundation funded containment project for the P. falciparum strains along the Thai-Cambodia border has a blog. And it looks terrific – from vivid photos, an interview with Dr Wichai Satimai (director of the Thai Bureau of Vector-Borne Diseases), and a close look at the neat Cambodian cooler boxes, the writers have been busy since starting in September. I will be following with great interest.
