Using Business to Fight Malaria

mosqOver a month ago, we covered a New York Times article on Billiton and its six year effort fighting malaria in Mozambique.? Now it has come to my attention that The World Economic Forum, in collaboration with Harvard’s School of Public Health, has released a paper, Business and Malaria: A Neglected Threat? which documents the danger that malaria poses to business.? The paper reaffirms the urgency of the situation and suggests that businesses need to step up where inept and corrupt governments have failed and help support the fight against malaria.? Check out the World Bank’s PSD Blog for more information.
