Nations Must Mobilize Additional Financial Support For Community-Level Malaria Programs, Blog Post Says

Tropical Health Matters: What are national governments willing to pay for malaria control?
Bill Brieger, professor in the Department of International Health at Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, discusses international and country-level funding for malaria. He concludes, “Although malaria funding from all sources has been increasing over the years, it has recently stagnated at a level approximately 45 percent of that level targeted to eventually eliminate the disease. … More financial support is needed to scale … up [community-level health programs], especially by mobilizing in-country governmental, corporate, and non-governmental resources” (2/12).
