Improving malaria treatment during pregnancy

Issue

Due to a shortage of safety data on pregnant women for most of the currently recommended malaria treatments, there are limited treatment options for this vulnerable population, particularly in the first trimester.

Action

MMV is supporting studies to investigate the safety profile of DHA-PQP for treatment during pregnancy.
