Trump Administration Should Invest In Malaria Efforts, Prioritize Global Development Challenges

Project Syndicate: Learning from Malaria
Bjørn Lomborg, visiting professor at the Copenhagen Business School and director of the Copenhagen Consensus Center

“…[G]reat strides have been made against malaria … [T]he lessons of that success can — and therefore should — be applied to other great development challenges. … [D]evoting substantial resources to smart development solutions can really change the world. … Copenhagen Consensus studies continue to show that malaria remains a great ‘investment’ — something the Trump administration should take into consideration as it considers cutting spending on the [President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI)]. … [W]e need to respond to other global challenges with similar smart investments. … In a world with no shortage of good causes, do[ing] the most good we can requires focusing on the best opportunities first. Malaria is one success. If we correctly prioritize the many other challenges we face, there could be a lot more” (7/18).
