Humans who live in malaria areas tend to develop a resistance to the disease, so in fact one approach to the problem might be to have genetically modified humans.

"one approach to the problem might be to have genetically modified humans. "

Although I understand your point, I suggest a far easier/cheaper and much more effective approach would be to 'go with Mother Nature'; rather than attempt to fight her ?

Facts.
1.
Mainstream propaganda is constantly broadcasting warnings of the 'perils' over-population, Western Governments have legalised abortion, and are now withdrawing Family Allowance/Child Maintenance payments to those with several children, as parts of an on-going programme of financial/social pressure; intended to reduce the birth rate below replacement level.
2.
Malaria is a natural form of population control, strikes largely in areas that are 'unhealthy/unsuited' to human habitation and is highly effective at weeding out the weak and sickly, whilst sparing the strong/vigorous.

Conclusion
Rather than spending billions inoculating/vaccinating and treating the weak, which both directly contributes to the over-population 'problem' and adversely affects the genetic quality of humanity; why not just stop preventing Mother Nature from doing the job; in her own time-honoured way ?

Absolute rubbish.

According to Charles Darwin, the Natural World has always 'thought'/functioned in this way; with the strong endlessly eradicating the weak (frequently eaten by the strong! ). It's the driving force behind Natural Selection.

How can you so enthusiastically believe/support this supposedly scientific doctrine, but loath the idea of applying it in human affairs ?

More 'Cognitive Dissonance' ?
