Malaria in Africa

Check that link out.  Sounds like something that seems relatively easy and apparently the 25th is the first Malaria Awareness day.  I haven't done any research on this too much, however at work and figured I would post this here before I forgot about it.  Ill try to post stuff later and feel free to throw in your two cents for those that may know more about the problem of Malaria in Africa.
