On World Malaria Day, Use Ebola’s Lessons To Improve Elimination Efforts

ONE: Malaria in the time of Ebola
Erin Hohlfelder, ONE’s policy director for global health, writes, “…I’d argue that the best way to mark World Malaria Day this year is to acknowledge the deep linkages that Ebola and malaria have with each other, and to think about how the lessons we’ve learned from either can help us more effectively tackle both. … Rather than pitting one disease against another, the world must recommit the financing and political will to tackling both diseases, and others like them, so that no man, woman, or child has to die needlessly from a preventable disease” (4/22).
