Sustained Funding, Strong Partnerships Critical To Preventing Drug-Resistant Malaria

Maile Young, communications intern at Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, discusses malaria parasitic resistance to artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) in the Greater Mekong Subregion, which “could have potentially devastating consequences for the global fight to eradicate malaria.” She highlights several initiatives aimed at preventing the spread of drug resistant malaria, concluding, “If we continue to build strong partnerships to facilitate the path from funding to treatment to prevention, this newly emerging problem can be stopped” (4/19).
