Cape Verde and Sao Tome and Principe are among the most successful countries in the fight against malaria during the last decade, while Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau have advanced little, according to the World Health Organization (who) said. Annual report of malaria (malaria), published a few days ago by the who, places these two countries within a group of 11 African countries that achieved a reduction of more than 50% in the number of cases of polio between 2000 and 2009. Cape Green is consider, since 2009, in phase of pre-eliminacion of malaria, after passing of 126 cases registered between 2000 and 2001 to only 65 cases detected last year. Today, 58 percent of the population lives in areas where the risk of contracting malaria is low, while the rest of the country is free of the disease. In Sao Tome and Principe, there was one decline even more, 38655 cases on average in the period 2000-2005 to 3893 cases in 2009, less than 90%. According to the who study, Angola, Mozambique and Guinea-Bissau are among the countries that have not registered significant improvements in the reduction of cases. The number of probable cases confirmed in Angola has suffered major variacioesn in the last decade, from 1.47 million in 1999 to 3.25 million in 2003, and declining to 2.22 million in 2009.En Guinea-Bissau, the number of cases registered last year reached the 143 thousand, rather less than the peak of 246 thousand of the year 2000. The who report says that the distribution of large quantities of mosquito nets treated with insecticides and the improvement of the effectiveness of the methods of fumigation of homes, are fundamental measures to combat malaria and to reduce cases.
