@DrTedros @WHOAFRO @WHOSEARO @WHOWPRO @WHOEMRO @WHO_Europe @pahowho "We have succeeded in eliminating #malaria from many parts of the world. By the 1950s, malaria had been eliminated from much of the temperate zone.
Until now, WHO has certified 38 countries and overseas territories as malaria-free"

How far do investments in health Research & Development align with global public health demands and needs?

Check out the WHO Global Observatory
@WHOAFRO @WHO_Europe @WHOSEARO @WHOEMRO @pahowho @WHOWPRO @DrTedros @doctorsoumya 1% of all funding for health R&D is allocated to diseases such as #malaria and #tuberculosis which account for more than 12.5% of the global burden of disease.
The recent outbreaks of #Ebola virus disease dramatically exposed the lack of investment in products and approaches to prevent and minimize the impact of pathogens with epidemic potential. 👉

I have been honored by the Japanese govt to serve 3 times as a judge for the Hideyo Noguchi Africa Prize. Awarded every 5 yrs, 2 individuals each receive 100 million yen. And the 2019 awards go to Drs. Jean-Jacques Myembe-Tamfum & Francis Gervase Omaswa.
Muyembe has played a pivotal scientific role in every #Ebola outbreak in his country, #DRCongo since the first in 1976, and trained a legion of African virus-fighters. His roles in the 1976 & 1995 epidemics were truly heroic. It is a joy to see him honored.
Omaswa left a thriving medical practice in London to return to his home, Ghana, where he built systems of medical training. And then he went global, creating healthcare worker advocacy & education worldwide. 1000s of African nurses & MDs owe their training to him.

#Malaria is a life-threatening disease caused by by parasitic protozoans that are transmitted to people through infected Anopheles mosquitoes belonging to the Plasmodium type. In severe cases, malaria can cause yellow skin, seizures, coma, or death.

In 2017, there were an estimated 219 million cases of #malaria in 87 countries.
The WHO #Africa Region carries a disproportionately high share of the global malaria burden. In 2017, the region was home to 92% of malaria cases and 93% of malaria deaths.

Total funding for #malaria control and elimination reached an estimated US$ 3.1 billion in 2017. Contributions from governments of endemic countries amounted to US$ 900 million, representing 28% of total funding.

I guess I better speak out on my own thread. @GRamsey_LatAm is gushing over how PAHO/WHO are "intervening" in the disastrous Venezuelan health situation.

Dude: I have been watching #measles and #malaria case numbers here in South America for the past few years.

The deterioration of the health situation in South America is glaringly evident.

A couple of years ago, I watched #malaria case numbers climb over 240,000 in Venezuela, after having been much lower than that for years, and almost eradicated in the 1950s and 1960s.

Soon thereafter, I personally witnessed the #migration out of #Venezuela , which had once been the most prosperous South American nation.

I saw some people so thin they could have been in the horrors of WW2.

#Venezuela's #NicolasMaduro:
"We had a large shipment of medicines to last the country for a year,a large batch of raw materials for food. The bank account was frozen,the contracts were cancelled & the money is seized. They suffocate us,steal our money & put a show for the world"
Nov. 2017:The transnational Pharmaceutical companies Baster,Abbot & Pfizer refused to issue exportation certificates to #Cancer drugs,making it impossible for #Venezuela to buy them
July 2017: The Citibank bank (#USA) refuses to receive #Venezuelan funds from the Central Bank for the import of 300 thousand doses of insulin, destined to cover the demand of 450 thousand registered patients.
Read 62 tweets… @NPRGoatsandSoda Usually a big fan of your journalism, but you guys did a disservice to your readers in the piece on gene drive in A. gambiae. Why would you reach out to anti-GMO activist Dr. Ricarda Steinbrecher for comment on this research? #malaria
First of all, asking Dr. Steinbrecher to comment on the consequences of using genetic engineering to suppress a disease vector is a bit like asking the pope about a newly developed form of birth control.

Of COURSE she’ll be against it - for ideological, arbitrary reasons
Plus, Dr. Steinbrecher’s degree is in developmental biology, not #ecology. Her statement about “ecosystem crashes” is absurd, and displays her ignorance in this area
