Drug-Resistant Malaria Threatens Progress Against Disease In Myanmar, World

Thomson Reuters Foundation: Drug-resistant malaria: the world’s next big health crisis?
“…Experts say Myanmar, which has the largest malaria burden in the region, is the next frontier in the spread of resistance to artemisinin. … If the problem spreads beyond the region, history would repeat itself for a third time, as resistance to other malaria drugs developed in the area before and spread to Africa to claim the lives of millions, especially children…” (Zweynert, 12/16).
