KILIMANJARO, TANZANIA—A portable laboratory is transforming the diagnosis of malaria in remote villages in Tanzania, pushing the disease into further decline and helping health workers to diagnose and treat more promptly other illnesses often mistaken for malaria. Scientists from Tanzania’s Joint Malaria Programme: Hugh Reyburn of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and Regina Maluga with Marwa Mwikwabe from Teule Hospital in Muheza, discuss the power of the new rapid diagnostic testing kits and the importance of the efforts local health workers are making for conquering malaria in Africa.
