Malaria Has Potential To Be Eliminated

Deseret News: Who cares about malaria?
John Hoffmire, director of the Impact Bond Fund at Saïd Business School at Oxford University

“…Innovative efforts to fight malaria focus on a variety of fronts. But one of the most interesting areas of research addresses hemoglobin C. It is a source of natural resistance that can reduce the risk of mortality by 80 percent. At no time in the history of humanity have we been as close as we are now to having the real capacity and means to eliminate this disease. Here’s to those who are doing the real work in addressing malaria” (5/26).
