Africa Malaria Day

Another few weeks pass with no update to this "current awareness" site. Apologies...

Today is Africa Malaria Day - it is thanks to the Education Guardian that I know this. According to the Education Guardian piece, over a million people die every year of malaria, around 80 percent of those deaths happening in Africa.

The Africa Malaria Day site itself is at
