More needs to be done to create policies to wipe out mosquito-borne diseases and stop the spread of malaria.

This, from Health Minister Terrence Deyalsingh as he addressed a Stakeholder Retreat to establish a Southern Caribbean Centre for Health Policy and Systems Research at the University of the West Indies, St. Augustine Campus.
