Prof Theonest Mutabingwa: The challenges facing malaria research

Theonest Mutabingwa is a Professor at Hubert Kairuki Memorial University in Dar-es-Salaam. Mutabingwa finds that the major advantage of being part of the WWARN community is gaining an understanding of the research his peers are involved with in other countries around the world.

He discusses the two key challenges that face developing countries to progress their malaria research. The first is the lack of funding and the second is the lack of adequate resources in terms of supplies and human resources.
