An Australian volunteer who was doing whatever volunteers do in PNG.
I was there for 2 years until Dec 2005 .. I hope I made the most of it.

Anti-Malarial Drug

The boffins around the world working on creating an anti-malarial drug have managed to mimic the same compound found in the drug Artemether (the one I used when I got Malaria). This is pretty good news, as it will be a cheap method to combat the parasite.

I will keep my spare box of Artemether handy for the time being though. Must also remember to take it over to Manus, they have a bit of problem there apparantly. First sign of headache now and I will be poping a couple of tabs.
