Notes: --- - Editorial - The article evaluates once-daily combination therapy for uncomplicated malaria. Although malaria transmission rates vary widely in sub-Saharan Africa, the majority of susceptible people live in areas with rates that are higher than that in Southeast Asia. For example, the entomological inoculation rate (EIR), which measures the number of infective mosquito bites per person per period, has been reported to be 0.3 infective bites/person per year in Tak Province, Thailand. In contrast, in some parts of Africa, the EIR has been estimated to range from 0.001 to 2.7 infective bites/person per night - !
