World Malaria Day

President George W. Bush had planned Malaria Awareness Day to be April 25 by 2007. President Bush encouraged Americans to join in on the fight against malaria on the African continent in his proclamation. President Bush declared Malaria Awareness Day on April 25, 2006, a day when we concentrate our attention on those who suffer from this deadly disease, especially the millions on Africa's continent. Millions of people died from this entirely preventable and treatable disease. We're encouraged to spread the word about malaria as a compassionate world, and we're encouraged to take action. That's what compassionate people do. They act when they see a problem. And here's what we're here to talk about. We reiterate our pledge to lead the world toward an urgent challenge, and that is to turn the tide against malaria in Africa and around the world on this special day. President Bush also shared the White House's strategic plan against malaria with the public, which was also shared with the White House by the public. Malaria No More, a New York-based nonprofit group Malaria No More, launched two new ventures in Uganda and Madagascar to distribute millions of life saving bed nets.
