Malaria outbreak in Northern Uganda leads to adoption of new drug

| ARTESUNATE was found to register
better outcomes in terms of treatment
than quinine in treating severe malaria.

A report by the Malaria Consortium
shows that despite the fact that
Uganda adopted new guidelines to treat
severe cases of malaria with the new
drug artesunate, it was reluctant to
start using the drug, until there was a
crisis in northern Uganda.

Artesunate was found to register
better outcomes in terms of treatment
than quinine in treating severe malaria.
