Malaria control: an interview with Dr Jo LinesPosted: January 21, 2013
Actually, as anyone who knows someone in that part of the world, or indeed in the rest of Africa, building houses is a major part of the family enterprise for almost any family you talk to. So how we could influence that huge amount of money that is being spent by private individuals to make those houses a little less friendly to mosquitoes might be the way in which we could bring the day the last malaria case disappears from Africa a little bit closer – a decade or two closer.
What role do you think vaccines will play in malaria control?
I wish that I had as much optimism as some of my colleagues do about vaccines but I’m a little bit sceptical that vaccines, at least of the kind that we have now, will be a game-changer.
