Administration actions and statements commemorating World Malaria Day
In commemoration of World Malaria Day (April 25), the National Institutes of Health (NIH) released a statement summarizing current efforts to address the disease and renewing its “commitment to the research needed to better understand the disease process in malaria, find new ways to diagnose and treat people with malaria, control the mosquitoes that spread it, and prevent malaria through vaccination.”
Prior to World Malaria Day, the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) released its “Seventh Annual Report to Congress” (April 19) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced (April 24) the launch of a “public-private partnership to help identify counterfeit or substandard anti-malarial medicines, including falsified products, with the deployment of the FDA-developed” handheld detection tool.
