November 30, 2016

The World Health Organization wants to eliminate malaria in at least 35 countries by 2030. Although there has been lots of progress towards this goal, some countries have noticed case numbers are remaining constant, or even rising. At Ifakara Health Institute in Tanzania, scientists believe that one of the reasons behind this is a shift in the mosquito population which transmits the disease.


Report: Julia Gross, Ifakara, Tanzania.  Julia's project was funded by the European Journalism Centre via its "Innovation in Development" reporting grant programme.  Her report was voiced by Neil King.
