Faith-Based Organizations Assist In Fight Against Malaria

Natasha Bilimoria, president of Friends of the Global Fight Against AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, discusses the importance of faith-based organizations in battling malaria in this post on the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s “Impatient Optimists” blog. “Reaching people where they live, work and worship is as important for supporters as it is for those suffering from this devastating illness. Thanks to the invaluable contributions of faith-based health care providers and donors, we can eliminate this deadly, but preventable, disease,” she writes (8/23).
