Virtual Issue: Malaria & Infectious Disease

In honor of World Malaria Day (April 25),
MAQ presents a virtual issue on Malaria and Infectious Disease.

According to the World Health Organization, approximately half of the world's population is at risk of malaria, particularly those living in lower-income countries. The articles in the virtual issue below demonstrate ways that ethnography and human behavior studies help to change care management and public health policy.
