According to African newspaper reports, the West Africa region has the highest burden of malaria cases on the continent. Malaria is the principle cause of illness and death among pregnant women and children in the region and accounts for 40 percent of health expenditure in endemic countries.
|Claire Tshilumba, Development and Regulatory Affairs Manager for West Africa said ''We take great care to ensure relevant regulatory authorisations are in place for all our products, it is great to see this achievement for LifeNet in an area where malaria transmission is so important. LifeNet has some great features which promise to significantly help with malaria control in these West African countries''.
