As Global Recession Worsens, is Malaria Killing Africa's Potential?

d Vision warns that the common approach of targeting only young children and pregnant women with bed nets actually fails to offer them the best protection, because it doesn't halt the cycle of mosquitoes picking up and carrying malaria from their neighbors. World Vision's analysis of recent anti-malaria studies shows a marked benefit to covering at least 80 percent of households with insecticide-treated bed nets, along with mobilizing community leaders and volunteers to educate, follow up and ensure participation.

World Vision implements child-focused relief and development programs in 64 of the 109 countries where malaria is endemic, including in Africa, Asia and Latin America. The public can help by visiting endmalaria.org or calling 1.888.56.CHILD.
