Malaria special - swissinfo
The Malaria Business
By the time you have read the first article on this page, six children in sub-Saharan Africa will have died of malaria, and 1,800 people worldwide will have started to show clinical symptoms of the disease.
 
New, effective anti-malarial drugs are not available to those who need them and only a small proportion of children at risk are protected by insecticide treated nets.
 
In a 13-part series, swissinfo takes a look at the burden of the disease and the ways in which it can be controlled.
