Malaria Eradication Requires Targeting Mosquitoes

Washington Times: Money alone, public or private, won’t eradicate malaria
Editorial Board

“…Earlier this month, [Bill Gates] wrote a check for $500 million to eradicate malaria. … His goal is to eradicate the mosquito-borne disease that kills an estimated 627,000 annually, mostly in Africa, by distributing mosquito nets and developing a ‘next-generation vaccine.’ It’s a commendable effort, but this isn’t a problem solved only with money. … Throwing money at a serious health problem isn’t always the best way to fight disease. Eliminating malaria requires killing bugs, not just writing checks” (11/12).
