Malaria and HIV Interactions and their Implications for Public Health Policy
Reference number: ISNB 92 4 159335 0
Malaria and HIV/AIDS are both diseases of poverty and
causes of poverty and they share determinants of vulnerability.
Given the wide geographical overlap in occurrence
and the resulting co-infection, the interaction between the
two diseases clearly has major public health implications.
WHO convened a technical consultation in Geneva from
23 to 25 June 2004 with researchers, policy-makers and
programme managers to review evidence on interactions
between malaria and HIV and the implications of such
interactions on prevention and control of both diseases.
The technical consultation included presentations of working
papers, group and plenary discussions as well as
recommendations that form the basis of this report.
