4 thoughts on “research & writing”
I think that you might like the following article . It details some of the history of malaria control and notes some very important events starting with the Kampala conference in 1950. A contribution that might be important now is to make distinctions among malaria vaccines that serve different groups. I can see vaccines that serve tourism and militaries but would eventually be a disaster for the people of Africa.
