Urban malaria in Africa

DUNN, Alison

Expand view

This policy brief considers the rising problem of urban malaria. Malaria can no longer be considered as just a rural issue in Africa. A significant and increasing proportion of the African population live in towns and cities. As urban centres continue to grow, the scale and impact of urban malaria is increasing. Despite this threat, control of the problem is feasible: urban malaria is uniquely amenable to prevention and control as the existing health, planning, agricultural and governance structures present opportunities for collaborative approaches that can include both the community and the substantial private sector. A potential disaster can be averted
