Martin Edlund is doing a great job live-blogging
the Gates Foundation Malaria Forum in Seattle. It’s ambitious – everybody
to talk about eradication – but it’s also realistic: the best hope
right now would seem to be a vaccine
which is (only) 50% to 65% effective in children under 4 years old. So far,
no mention of DDT,
which is interesting in itself.
