World Refugee Day Serves As Opportunity For Malaria Control Programs To Step Up Efforts To Protect All People

Tropical Health Matters: Refugees and Malaria
Bill Brieger, professor in the health systems program of the Department of International Health at Johns Hopkins University, recognizes World Refugee Day, which takes place annually on June 20, and discusses efforts to prevent malaria among refugees, a population that has an increased risk of malaria exposure. Brieger writes, “World Refugee Day is a time for people in malaria national control/elimination programs to take note of the refugee and displaced populations within their boundaries and step up efforts to protect everyone” (6/20).
