Malaria affects half a billion people, 40% of the population live at risk of contracting the disease and more than one million children die.
Malaria affects half a billion people, 40% of the population live at risk of contracting the disease and more than a million children die every year on the planet.The problem is that. Malaria reaches Brazilians, Americans, Canadians, Mexicans,Asians, Indians, Chineses, Europeans, Africans, South Americans ....and more than one hundred countries. The discussion is open. I invite all the TED community, teachers, college students, researchers to think big on this subject that have the greatest responsibility for mastering the knowledge. Who qualifies? We can not be blind, deaf and dumb on this public health problem. What can we do to prevent this tragedy let pass through our eyes every day?
