Not much interest for fighting malaria
Pharmaceutical companies are not very interested in controlling malaria because of the low return on very expensive research and development work. For this reason we are focused on a tea extract which is available in this area and is obtained from the Artemisia plant. This tea alleviates the symptoms of the illness significantly, utilizing a natural base.
