There are hurdles to clear
before malaria elimination can be achieved. A supplement published in Malaria
Journal features a series of articles reviewing the many aspects of the
research agenda for global malaria elimination. In this supplement, authors
chart the progress that has been made in the development of malaria vaccines
intended for eradication, rather than clinical disease prevention, whilst
another notes that even highly effective interventions designed to reduce
mortality actually have very little noticeable effect on the clinical pattern
However, on a more positive
note, Editor-in-Chief of Malaria Journal, Marcel Hommel, notes that the
combination of mass distribution of mosquito nets and nationwide distribution
of artemisinin-based combination therapies has resulted in substantial declines
in malaria cases and deaths in a number of countries.
The production of this supplement has been made possible by generous
sponsorship from the Foundation for the National
Institutes of Health (FINH), FIND
and the Wellcome Trust.

So happy to see BMC Psychology added to the BMC family of journals.
This is a step in the right direction. Nice to finally see a psychology journal among the already existing BMC journals. I am confident BMC Psychology will make a strong impact.
