China alongside the Comoros to eradicate malaria in the archipelago
Since 2007, China is actively working alongside the Comorian authorities in the fight against malaria in Mohéli, and last year in the heart of Anjouan.
 
A delegation from the University of Ganzhou has shifted in the Comoros archipelago, to see firsthand on the ground, the joint work carried out to eradicate the disease.
The initial findings reported show that malaria has declined sharply in the islands subject to this vast project of Sino-Comoros malaria eradication scale.
 
The prevalence rate has dropped significantly and only five cases are currently registered in Moheli and 7 other surveys on the island of Anjouan.
 
Encouraging results that motivate the Comorian authorities wanting to expand the geographical area targeted Grande Comore.
