Description
 
Patricia Matteson. For decades, DDT has played a major role in global efforts to combat malaria & other tropical diseases. Following its initial introduction, DDT was employed with striking early success against mosquitoes & other insects transmitting diseases such as malaria, sleeping sickness, river blindness, & typhus. In 1955, the WHO launched a global malaria eradication initiative relying on DDT. The program eradicated or dramatically reduced malaria in 37 countries, saving millions of lives. The goal of eradicating malaria globally proved elusive, however. Includes: exposures & effects; profiles of alternative approaches; & resolving the DDT dilemma.
