$100 billion for malaria prevention and treatment
This week in Addis, governments agreed to pledge $100 billion in malaria prevention and treatment.
The report cites the work of the Copenhagen Consensus, stating that
cost-benefit assessment conducted on the goals and targets of the post-2015 development agenda also found robust evidence that the economic benefits of reversing the spread of malaria and reducing annual malaria deaths by 95% would be 15 times higher than the costs, an ROI that it classified as “phenomenal”.
