Malaria kills one child every 30 seconds, even though it is preventable and curable. Widespread in tropical regions, it is spread by infected mosquitoes.

Patrick Maigua spoke about the progress being made towards that goal with Dr. Awa Marie Coll-Seck, Executive Director of The Roll Back Malaria Partnership.
