Tanzania: Planting the seeds of malaria control

WHO/Stephenie Hollyman

In the Waarusha village of Engalaoni, United Republic of Tanzania, farmers like Mika Abel Langei are now growing Artemisia annua. Langei, the group leader for the Artemisia cultivation project in the village, was instrumental in convincing his fellow Waarusha neighbours to plant Artemisia in addition to traditional crops such as maize and sweet potatoes.
