dc.description.abstract This is a letter to the editor by Jean Lebel, president of IDRC, in response to a previous newspaper article entitled “DDT Fights Malaria.” He emphasizes research as critical to correcting old notions that prescribe “off- the-shelf solutions, especially ones of such dubious legacy.” He describes examples from current global research that counter some misconceptions about the use of the DDT (dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane) toxin. en
