The Lancet

0 The Lancet launches free, open-access online global health journal

Highlighted in the first Lancet Global Health is a commentary by Richard Feachem and colleagues at the University of California, San Francisco that poses the question Malaria eradication: Is it possible? Is it worth it? Should we do it? I expected a critical analysis of the pros and cons. But Feachem and his colleagues, who are financially supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (the leading voice favoring eradication) and do malaria research, simply made the case for their benefactor’s position and more funding of their work.
