Editorial

Malaria poses a huge threat to children under five and the disease burden of huge number of death of adults and children affects the production capacities of adults. Yet it is probably easier to deal with malaria than the HIV/AIDS crisis.

It is indeed disheartening that a disease that has wreaked so much havoc in Africa should be allowed to continue afflicting this continent at a time when there is so much work being done and so much information readily available.

It is time to take African Governments on to honour their commitment to malaria. The media, as the commonest and easiest channel of engaging the public on topical issues and as the mouthpiece of the people, therefore has the mandate to demand this from the
governments.

African Media and Malaria Research Network (AMMREN) has therefore taken it upon itself to use the platform, Eyes on Malaria to initiate a dialogue on malaria in Africa and step up
advocacy for its eradication from the continent. AMMREN is particularly interested in malaria research. This is because research findings enrich the planning process for effective health care. However over the years research findings have mostly remained on the shelves of laboratories. The public hardly gets informed about these findings and therefore tend not to benefit totally from the investments made by  governments in scientific research.

AMMREN seeks to bridge the gap between scientists and the public by using the media
who have the skills and means to get the right information from the scientists to the public. It is about journalists and scientists working hand in hand for a healthier and better tomorrow.
