Thomson Reuters Foundation: Four reasons why Africa, Gates and Obama want to end malaria
“The world’s richest couple, Bill and Melinda Gates, and U.S. President Barack Obama are giving financial backing to global plans to eliminate malaria. … Here are four of their arguments for pouring money into the issue: It promises almost a 20-fold return on investment … It’s the only way to deal with drug-resistance … More children in school, less in hospital … It frees up money for ‘the next epidemic’…” (Migiro, 6/9).
