Established in 1980, the MIC has answered over 200 000 queries from health care workers and we’ve done it well. During this time, the centre has been funded by a range of generous funders. Our current funding, kind favour of the Global Fund and Western Cape Department of Health ends in March 2019, so we’re on the hunt for more generous funders. Please, if you are one of those, or you know of anyone/any organisation that is, let us know.
It’s hard to believe that we’ve been running the hotline for ten years, but we have. And we’re very proud of the work we do and look forward to many more years of doing it.
Good news from the field of malaria: The FDA has recently approved a new treatment for Plasmodium vivax malaria, the first new treatment for P.vivax in 60 years.
