Why is malaria on the rise worldwide?

Malaria is one of the world’s biggest killers – and it’s back on the rise. The fight against the disease looked like it was being won, but the number of cases is once again increasing. So why is the battle seemingly being lost? Joining us at the Roundtable is Richard Kamwi, an Ambassador for Elimination 8, a group that's trying to make Southern Africa Malaria-free; Jake Baum, Professor of Cell Biology and Infectious Diseases at Imperial College London; Charlie Webster, a broadcaster who contracted Malaria while presenting the Olympic games in Rio and had to be put into a medically-induced coma; and Chris Drakeley, Professor of Infection and Immunity at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. Roundtable is a discussion programme with an edge. Broadcast out of London and presented by David Foster, it's about bringing people to the table, listening to every opinion, and analysing every point of view. From fierce debate to reflective thinking, Roundtable discussions offer a different perspective on the issues that matter to you. Watch it every weekday at 15:30 GMT on TRT World.
