Malaria

£14.99

Product description

Malaria Waiting for the Vaccine Edited by G.A.T. Targett, London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine Malaria affects enormous populations in tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world. In global terms,the situation is worsening as the impact of parasite and mosquito vector adaptations to drugs and insecticides exacerbates weaknesses in control programmes already under great strain for socio-economic reasons.

This book, the first in a series of annual public health from the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, brings together expertise in all of the disciplines that impinge on current control efforts and that are essential for the development of new and improved measures. The ten sections provide a balance between the different approaches to public health management of malaria,those concerned with the individual who is infected, and control at community level. Clinical control emphasizes management of severe disease and the impact of drug resistance.

Community public health measures consider all aspects of vector control, use and supply of drugs in endemic regions, and the organization and economics of control. For the future, the current status of vaccine development and the conduct of field trials are assessed. Detailed discussions amongst experts in each field lead to a series of recommendations designed to assist those currently engaged in control and management of the disease, to indicate priorities for future research, and above all to provide an agenda for national and international discussion on future strategies for combating the disease. The book will also appeal to epidemiologists, research scientists and clinicians as it sets their research and responsibilities in a much wider context than normal. In a similar way it will be invaluable for postgraduate teaching.

Condition is fine with only slight signs of wear to the boards. Interior pages are crisp and clean with a tight binding.
