Déclaration sur l’utilisation du DDT dans la lutte contre le Paludisme en Afrique

La journée mondiale de lutte contre le paludisme, le 25 Avril 2016 est l’occasion encore une fois pour Pesticide Action Network (PAN) Africa de renouveler son soutien à la Convention de Stockholm et réaffirmer sa position contre l’utilisation du DDT dans la lutte contre le paludisme.

In the run-up to the 7th Conference of the Parties (COP7), IPEN has released its "Quick Views of Stockholm Convention COP7." This document is a summary statement of IPEN views on issues that COP7 will be called upon to address, including POPs wastes, tecnical assistance and regional centres, rules of procedure, compliance, listing of pentachlorophenol (PCP) in Annex A, listing of hexachlorobutadiene (HCBD) in Annex A and C, exemptions and acceptable purposes, evaluation of PFOS, and more. 

IPENers from Uganda Network on Toxic Free Malaria Control (UNETMAC) and Pesticide Action Network (PAN) North America are quoted in this recent article.

The Observer, 12 January, 2014

Malaria is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality in Uganda, with an estimated average of 10.6 million malaria cases each year.

It is responsible for 30-50 per cent of all hospital outpatient visits, 35 per cent of hospital admissions and 9-14 per cent of all hospital deaths.
