Working paper by D.G. Dalrymple

This paper grew out of a project supported by the U. S. Agency for International Development, within the context of the Roll Back Malaria Initiative, to provide technical support to farmers, particularly small farmers, in East Africa in the production of Artemisia (Artemisia annua) for use in the manufacture of artemisinin-based combination drug therapies (ACTs).
