Medicines for malaria venture new developments in antimalarials.
Choosing appropriate chemoprophylaxis and stand-by treatment for travelers will remain a problem for the near future because of resistant Plasmodium falciparum. For those who live in the malaria endemic regions of the world it is a matter of life and death, but the future looks bright for control of malaria because of the development of organizations like MMV and their ability to forge suitable partnerships to tackle really big problems. This would not be possible if it were not for the MMV Stakeholders who provide the funding necessary for the discovery and development of new drugs. Malaria is a difficult problem but even if only a few of the potential drugs in the MMV pipeline become drugs, the control of malaria may again become possible.
