Again -- Malaria kills.  It is preventable and treatable but millions die from it every year.   Mostly children.  The reasons are political and social and economic and an adequate discussion is beyond the scope of this pseudo-blog.  MSF has been active in implementing highly effective Artemisinin Combined Therapy into its projects worldwide.  Here in my health center we are currently diagnosing between 50 and 100 cases a day.  Again, the world needs a malaria vaccine.
