WHO Releases New Malaria Treatment Guidelines

Via Bernama:

"The World Health Organisation released new malaria treatment and procurement guidelines on Tuesday, recommending the use of diagnostic tests and a new artemisinin-based combination therapy as new treatments, reports China's Xinhua news agency.

"It is time to move away from the idea that everyone with a fever is suspected to have malaria," said Robert Newman, director of the WHO global malaria programme."
