But Elizabeth Juma, an epidemiologist for the Kenya Medical Research Institute, said that iron supplements should continue to be provided as they are important for combatting the anaemia that malaria often causes.
By only providing patients with iron supplements after the malarial symptoms have been treated, the reduction of the drugs' effects could be avoided, she said.

According to Elizabeth Juma, head of malaria control at Kenya's Ministry of Public Health, proper malaria treatment is as important as malaria prevention, saying strategies such as the use of insecticide treated mosquito nets should be promoted.
"Proper treatment for those already infected with malaria is important, but even more important is the promotion of prevention strategies like the use of insecticide treated nets, which is still low in the country," she said.

Elizabeth Juma, the head of the Division for Malaria Control in the Ministry of Public Health and Sanitation, said the survey focused on children younger than age five because of their vulnerability to the transmission of malaria, Capital News reports. (Karong'o, 6/30).
The survey also found that prescription drugs were being sold over the counter, and it calls on the Pharmacy and Poisons Board to ensure medicines are regulated, according to the Daily Nation. The report also recommends that children presenting with fever be tested for malaria and treated accordingly, "which is bound to raise debate given that most health clinics do not have the facilities and equipment to undertake such tests," writes the Daily Nation (6/30).
According to Capital News, "[t]he report further indicated that at least 61 percent of Kenyan children do not sleep under Insecticide Treated Nets (ITNs), which are recommended for preventing malaria spread. Juma said efforts to promote the use of bed nets must be scaled up (6/30).
