Abstract:

Every thirty seconds a child dies from malaria somewhere in the world. As new cases, the disease affects more than one hundred million people each year, most of them in sub-Saharan Africa. But with global warming the distribution of mosquito vectors is changing and whole populations are at increasing risk. Alphonse Laveran first demonstrated the parasitic nature of malaria in 1880. Within twenty years, Ronald Ross had worked out the role of mosquitoes in transmission of the disease. This first translation of the two scientists' correspondence asks whether the world has let them down, failing to translate their findings into 'straightforward action'.
