Malaria is 2nd to HIV/AIDS
Article in Time Magazine today about malaria is interesting. The Humanist Movement has been working on a campaign to stop malaria for almost two years in various places. I'm working on getting all of the info in one place so we can talk more with Drake Zimmerman about his work with the Rotary Club on Malaria.
The latest figures suggest that malaria sickened 300 million people last year and killed 3 million — most of them under age 5. (AIDS last year killed just over 3 million people.) What makes the malaria deaths particularly tragic is that malaria, unlike AIDS, can be cured.
By the way, here is a link to an interview I did on Chicago Public Radio's Worldview program with Jerome McDonnell last fall.
