Priorities for Our Children

Living here in the tropics, the Philippines, we are very much aware of the health impacts of global change. Incidence of vector-borne diseases such as malaria and dengue has been constantly rising. I personally think that the UN also prioritize vaccine development for Malaria. This disease has been present since time immemorial and has been re-emerging again in numbers. We hope that a vaccine for malaria gets developed. We already have a dengue vaccine and it is proposed to be given in a national immunization program, with elementary pupils as recipients. I am looking forward to seeing a decrease, and hopefully, eradication of dengue cases here in our country.
