World Malaria Day 2014

World Malaria Day 2014 is today, April 25, 2014.  A huge part of any culture is technology.  Technology has contributed to controlling and helping to eliminate Malaria worldwide.  Malaria kills thousands of children every day, mostly children under five years old in Sub-Saharan Africa, as revealed in the above photograph.  Culture and technology are working together to eliminate this tragedy, which affects both children and adults.

In a News article by Carolyn Woo, Malaria is a scourge that can be defeated.

“Malaria is an enormous and tragic problem – that can be beat.  It takes the life of a child every minute in Sub-Saharan Africa, and a million people die from malaria each year.  it also stifles economic development, as malaria prevents children from attending school and adults from working.  Today is World Malaria Day, and I am pleased to celebrate the lives saved and enriched by recent attention and investments.  Not tht many years ago, this would be an occasion for and-wringing and lamenting the many victims of this disease and wishing we could gt the world to do more.”
