Malaria Investments Critical To Ending Epidemic, Supporting Economic Growth
Friends of the Global Fight: Robust malaria investments see returns and keep progress from sliding backwards
Katie Broendel, senior communications manager at Friends of the Global Fight, discusses findings from the latest World Malaria Report. Broendel also highlights a recent study released by the Malaria Elimination Initiative (MEI) at the University of California, San Francisco, writing, “Making strategic investments in global health, particularly through funding for public-private partnerships such as the Global Fund, is crucial to saving lives and defeating this epidemic. … As MEI’s report illustrates, financing the end of malaria not only saves lives, but supports economic growth in the process” (12/7).
