Malaria Nearly Eliminated in Sri Lanka Despite Decades of Conflict | www.ucsf.edu

"Despite nearly three decades of conflict, Sri Lanka has succeeded in reducing malaria cases by 99.9 percent since 1999 and is on track to eliminate the disease entirely by 2014."
 
Other countries can learn from this positive lesson. Sri Lanka is showing us that it is possible to eliminate malaria. But, please keep the momentum this time and avoid the mistakes of 1963 during the era of global eradication. The lack of commitment lead to failure of eradication in the developing world.

Haja Fatmata Binta Bah - It's been 10 years since you left us

10 years ago, this day (7th April), I lost a very special woman in my life.
10 years later, I still feel the urge to connect with her.
Words cannot describe the emptiness.
There’s no substitute for a mother’s unconditional love.
Neneh, we miss you. May Allah continue to bless you, and may you continue to rest in peace.
