RBM on Facebook:

RBM asked: How can countries raise funds for malaria control in today's economic climate?
"Rebecca Stevens Alder answered: The African diaspora can raise funds to help. We owe it to Africa, to our mothers and fathers, our brothers and sisters, our ancestors. Who is ready to start up an African Diaspora Fund for Malaria?"

RBM on Twitter:

Tweet of the month: "Malaria is no longer the first cause of child mortality in Africa. This would have been impossible without the Global Fund."
