Eradicating Malaria Is A ‘Realistic Possibility’

Eliminating malaria in endemic countries is a “realistic possibility if those countries keep expanding malaria prevention and treatment at the pace set in recent years,” Michel Kazatchkine, executive director of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, writes on the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s blog.

“We are now at a critical inflection point. As the world catches its breath with the economic crisis, some donor countries are reducing their overseas development budgets. But if we are to realize our goal of eliminating malaria, the world must commit to finish what has been started,” he writes (6/20).
