WHO Commends Iran on Malaria

The World Health Organization (WHO) has commended Iran for its success in hygiene and malaria prevention, noting that “quick diagnostic abilities and control measures have led to outstanding achievements.”
Despite the effective malaria control in Iran, neighboring countries Afghanistan and Pakistan still struggle with the disease and it can be potentially dangerous, “therefore, Iran should continue to take precautions,” said Jihan Tavila, WHO representative in Iran, at the International Malaria Congress in Bushehr, reports IRNA.
Combating malaria is expensive, “nevertheless, each dollar spent in this regard equals $60 benefit for the national healthcare system,” Tavila added.
Every year, half a million people worldwide lose their lives to malaria.
