Count AAA in for World Malaria Day

AAA is recognizing World Malaria Day with a special virtual issue of Medical Anthropology Quarterly. This virtual issue will be available to the public via Wiley Online Library from April 25 to July 15, 2011. Wiley-Blackwell is AAA’s publishing partner and host of AnthroSource.

Approximately half of the world’s population is at risk of malaria, particularly those living in lower-income countries, according to the World Health Organization. The selected articles of the virtual issue demonstrate ways that ethnography and human behavior studies help to change care management and public health policy of malaria and other infectious diseases. By joining the global movement to roll back the staggering statistics on malaria, anthropologists serve as catalyst around the world to research the medical and cultural impacts of this disease; help understand how public health practice can be best understood and used by diverse groups; and share their findings to help count malaria out.
