In the Nyanza Province of Kenya

For as much attention as AIDS gets as a killer in Africa, malaria kills nearly 1 million people here each year, most of them children. Out today on a project for the CDC Foundation, I got a chance to see some of CDC’s bed net projects aimed at curbing the malaria infection rate in Western Kenya. As is often the case, simple solutions for best. For the Asman family I visited today, it has been four years since any of the kids have contracted malaria. That’s the difference a $5 bed net can make. - David Snyder
