Hence a comprehensive malaria eradication program will have to be devised, that not only supplies robust vaccines but also addresses the socio-economic indicators of the target locality. Making the vaccines economically affordable is another criterion for successful eradication. Vast amounts of human and economic resources are required for eradicating malaria. And as things stand now, such resources are inadequate.
The initiation of The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria is an endeavor towards this end. What is now required is a sincere implementation of this program along with an expedited research on new vaccines. A co-operative effort from government agencies, philanthropic organizations (such as The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation), Non-Governmental organizations and the pharmaceutical industry is the need of the hour. Upon the successful cooperation of these entities depend the lives of thousands of impoverished people in the world.
