Chloroquine is equally important as any antimalarial drug.It shouldn't be discouraged.

I personally do not share the belief of most countries in East Africa changing chloroquine as a first-line drug for the management of malaria.
I have believed and still believe in the efficacy of chloroquine for acute malaria cases in West Africa and Africa generally. We only need to review our dispensing methods, improve on our advocacy methods and carry out thorough studies before consigning this wonder drug to the trash can of history
