Honestly, What Would It Take to Solve This?

Thus continues my African saga . . . . I got another Gallup Poll today about malaria in Africa and how getting mosquito nets to the rural folks would dramatically reduce this disease. There are barriers to getting mosquito nets to people in the very rural areas - cost, superstition, but most of all, lack of decent roads. You know, last night I was watching a show on The Discovery Channel about the building of a road across Alaska so that the pipeline could be run through. If we can manage this, how hard can it be to get mosquito nets to rural Africans?
