The state of immunology in Africa: HIV/AIDS and malaria.


HIV and malaria are two major infections that are responsible for the greatest burden of diseases, morbidity and mortality in the African population. Successful research has been undertaken in Africa into novel means of monitoring HIV disease progression and in identifying vaccine candidates. The role of IgG isotypes in malaria has been investigated, as have parasite adhesion molecules important for pathogenesis. It is hoped that vaccines for malaria will soon prove successful. However, many problems still face immunology research in Africa.
