ONE is here at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Malaria Forum to speak with the many experts who have gathered. Among the people we’ve been lucky enough to talk to are:
Suprotik Basu, who is the Public Health Specialist for the World Bank’s Malaria Control Booster Program. Mr. Basu spoke via video to ONE’s members, telling us that there is a lot to be excited about the world’s efforts to combat malaria.
ONE also spoke with Dr. Christian Loucq, who is the Director of the PATH Malaria Vaccine Initiative. Dr. Loucq made a very exciting announcement the day the Malaria Forum began: PATH is developing a malaria vaccine that is performing extremely well in early testing.
Oliver Sabot, Director of the Clinton Foundation Malaria Control Team, took some time to share some of the exciting work they are doing on the ground in Zambia and elsewhere. Here Oliver is showing us some of the literature they distribute with medicine to treat Malaria. This guide is easy to understand, as its printed in the native language and also includes pictoral instructions for those unable to read.
We are speaking with more experts later and we’ll be sure to fill you in on their inspiring work too!
