Book DescriptionMalaria is an increasing worldwide threat, with more than three hundred million infections and one million deaths every year. The disease is increasingly difficult to control as malaria parasites become resistant to drugs, and mosquitoes develop resistance to pesticides. The world's poorest are the worst affected, and they are the least able to afford costly new drugs. Many use traditional medicines to treat themselves. The first book to be published on this subject, Traditional MedicinalPlants and Malaria explores the safety and efficacy of these traditional medicines. It examines the evidence and presents practical guidelines to help researchers study traditional and plant-based antimalarial medicines, mosquito repellents and insecticides.
