Africa Fighting Malaria is a not-for-profit health advocacy group based in South Africa and in the United States. They research and comment on the political economy of diseases and disease control in developing countries, focusing primarily on malaria.
AFM promotes short term solutions to the malaria problem, and criticizes expenditures on mitigating climate change as having benefits too far in the future to be useful. They advocate spending money on quick-fixes for problems which could be solved in the future by successfully combatting things like climate change. Along with groups like The Competitive Enterprise Institute and the Liberty Institute, AFM promotes the use of DDT as an effective means of combatting malaria in the developing world. AFM formed a coalition called Save Children From Malaria in 2000 and campaign to preserve the use of DDT.
