Plasmodium falciparum malaria and antimalarial interventions in sub-Saharan Africa: Challenges and opportunities

EFO Enato, AO Okhamafe

Abstract


Plasmodium falciparum malaria is one of the most important parasitic diseases affecting sub-Saharan Africa, despite the availability of interventions. It exerts tremendous socio-economic and medical burden on the continent, particularly in under five children and pregnant women. In this review, we have attempted to highlight the problems, constraints and the opportunities that are available for effective prevention and control within the region.
