U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative Helped Save Nearly 2M Children In Africa Through 2014, Study Shows

New York Times: U.S. Malaria Donations Saved Almost 2 Million African Children
“Over the last decade, American donations to fight malaria in Africa have saved the lives of nearly two million children, according to a new analysis of mortality rates in 32 countries there. The study, published by PLOS Medicine this month, looked at the long-term effects of the President’s Malaria Initiative, a program started by President George W. Bush in 2005… The results debunk one of the persistent myths of foreign aid: that it has no effect because more children survive each year anyway as economies improve…” (McNeil, 6/26).
