Excerpt
Excerpt: Half a century ago, a potent combination of antibiotics, vaccines, and public health measures seemed poised to win the ancient war against infectious disease. Even malaria appeared to be succumbing to a mix of insecticides, larvicides (used to kill the mosquito vector), and drugs (used to kill the malaria-causing Plasmodium parasite in the human bloodstream). But while smallpox and polio were conquered, malaria was not; mosquito evolution and concerns about health effects from insecticides blunted mosquito eradication campaigns, and Plasmodium developed resistance to many drugs. Today, malaria is resurgent in many tropical regions, especially Africa. According to the World Health Organization, each year it infects more than 300 million people and kills at least 1 million, mostly children.
