Huffington Post: We Can Be the Generation to End Malaria Deaths
Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria’s finance minister and board member for Friends of the Global Fund Africa

“Friday [April 25] is World Malaria Day, an opportune moment to recognize the recent, remarkable progress to save lives from malaria as well as the challenges ahead as we forge a path to sustain success against one of the world’s oldest preventable killer diseases. … This World Malaria Day we have the opportunity to continue to dismantle malaria’s grip on African households and indeed entire economies. In doing so, we will help release the potential of future generations to flourish and move our world decisively to a healthier, more stable and prosperous future” (4/25).
