Suppository offers lifeline for children with malaria
A suppository form of a malariafighting drug could provide a lifeline to children in rural areas.
A study in Zambia found that suppository drugs provided a crucial window for children with severe malaria, allowing them to reach a health facility.
Each year, 445,000 people die from malaria; 90% of deaths are in sub-Saharan Africa. Children under five are at greatest risk.
