Richard Tren, head of Africa Fighting Malaria, a pro-DDT advocacy group based in South Africa and Washington DC, said the controversy which has surrounded DDT is "narrow minded" in opposing the use of the chemical for controlling malaria.
military's Uniformed Services University of Health Sciences, and Richard Tren, head of the pro-DDT lobby group Africa Fighting Malaria, argue that DDT is today the only effective weapon against the deadly mosquito-borne parasite.
However, once the country reintroduced the pesticide, those rates dropped dramatically, underscoring the necessity of the insecticide in combating malaria throughout the entire continent, contend Richard Tren, director of Africa Fighting Malaria, and Roger Bate, a visting fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

That drew a response from Africa Fighting Malaria in South Africa, who pointed out the effectiveness and relative cheapness of DDT in mosquito control and its ability to save lives (African Business, June and July/August 2001).
Tren directs Africa Fighting Malaria, a research group based in Sandton, South Africa.
Even if eventually human health effects are found to be caused by DDT, these effects would be far less than those caused by malaria (Africa Fighting Malaria 2010; Roberts et al.
In an emailed statement, USAID's malaria team informed me that its "activities are focused to reduce reliance on the pesticide DDT" They are "emphasizing prevention, medical intervention, and mosquito nets dipped in pyrethroid" Richard Tren, head of a group called Africa Fighting Malaria, says that the international aid agencies of Sweden, the United Kingdom, Norway, Japan, and Germany have all told him they would not fund DDT projects, nor will UNICEF.
