India Malaria Deaths Are Underestimated by WHO, Researchers Say - Bloomberg

India Malaria Deaths Are Underestimated by WHO, Researchers Say - Bloomberg: "More than 200,000 people may be dying in India each year because of malaria, 13 times more than the World Health Organization estimates, a study found.

Researchers based their estimate on interviews with family members of more than 122,000 people who died between 2001 and 2003. The numbers “greatly exceed” the WHO estimates of 15,000 malaria deaths in India each year, the researchers wrote in the study, published today in the journal The Lancet."
