Global Frameworks Recognize Link Between Malaria, Food Security

Tropical Health Matters: Global Frameworks Link Malaria and Food Security
Bill Brieger, professor at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, discusses the link between malaria and food security in three global frameworks: the Alma Ata Declaration on Primary Health Care, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Brieger writes, “A thorough reading of the three mentioned documents/frameworks importantly shows that malaria and food security do not exist in isolation. Their potential interaction and intersection happen in a context of poverty, the environment, and climate change” (5/23).
