Malaria is the single greatest killer of children in Africa....

And even though this disease is completely curable, one to three million children will still die, because for many families in developing countries, effective treatments and preventative bed nets are too expensive.
Last year, the Clinton Foundation launched a pilot subsidy program in Tanzania--the country with the highest rate of deaths from malaria in southern Africa--to make safe, effective malaria treatment available to those who couldn't normally afford treatment. The initial findings of the pilot showed a drop in price from $10 to $0.50 in pilot areas--a 95 percent decrease.
