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.
