Bangladesh losing battle against malaria

While the number of people dying of malaria declines globally, Bangladesh is not showing any dramatic success.

    The World Health Organisation's latest report shows the number of people dying of malaria is continuing to fall.

    It has halved since the beginning of the millenium. But Bangladesh is not showing such dramatic success in the battle against malaria.

    Traditional farming methods are actually undoing much of the progress made to combat the disease.
