WHO Meeting to Address Malaria

kids11This week the World Health Organization continues its annual meeting to address public health priorities for the world body. Ironically, just several days before Rachel Carson’s birthday, they will address malaria control and possibly DDT use. At issue is whether the world’s public health agency will underscore the position it took in September 2006, supporting increased use of DDT to save millions from the ravages of malaria. Radical environmentalists have been pressing for a reversal, but hopefully, public health advocates will hold the line in support of DDT for malaria control.
