Sharing knowledge & information on malaria

MalariaWorld

 

 

Imagine that your child dies because your doctor does not have ccess to the most up-to-date medical knowledge. Knowledge that is available, but that your doctor cannot afford. 

 

This is no fiction.

It is the daily reality in Africa.

 

 


 

Doctors all around the world should have access to the latest knowledge and information about malaria.

 

The majority of medical doctors and researchers in Africa don’t have access to the latest medical information because it is simply too expensive. A doctor, for instance, can only prescribe the right treatment based on the latest information. The treatment may change over time because the malaria parasite becomes increasingly resistant against particular drugs. A researcher, on the other hand, is wasting his time and money if he is not aware of what has become obsolete or proven. Every week dozens of scientific papers are published online. The average cost to download this information is € 25,= per paper. And that while a doctor in Congo earns just over € 100,= per month.

 

The Dutch Malaria Foundation considers it essential that medical doctors and researchers have access to accurate information so they can act appropriately. For this reason we have developed the world's largest online malaria information portal: MalariaWorld

 

MalariaWorld informs >9000 medical doctors and researchers around the world daily free of charge about the latest relevant malaria information via www.malariaworld.org
