"A review of malaria elimination conducted by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Malaria Research Institute and other institutions [and published in Science] suggests stopping malaria transmission completely has long-lasting benefits for many countries and that once eliminated, the disease is unlikely to reemerge over time," a Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health press release reports. "Furthermore, total eradication of malaria may not be necessary before countries that eliminate the disease within their own borders can rely on their health systems to control cases," the press release continues (2/21).
