The authors of “When Politics Kills" argue that action against malaria is over-centralised and narrowly focused, ignoring local conditions and concerns. Health agencies in developing countries and some companies are trying to stem a resurgent tide of malaria. Their work is, however, hampered by pressure from environmentalist groups and donor agencies which still crusade against the use of DDT and which have won a partial victory under the POPs (persistent organic pollutants) convention. A continuing anti-DDT campaign would have as its victims people in some of the world's poorest countries.
