More on Malaria

The topic of malaria in Africa is heating up. President Bush & his wife Laura have just pledged funding from the U.S. in order to fight the disease. I have to wonder if it's really going to happen, though, as I just googled "bush malaria pledge" and found a slew of articles on the exact same topic from a year-and-a-half ago. A sampling:

Bush Announces Initiatives Targeting Malaria, Education, Women's Rights in Africa

Save the Children Applauds Bush Pledge to Increase Aid for Africa
Bush Overstates Africa Aid Increase

Did this aid ever get to Africa? If it did, why didn't it do more good? Hmmm.
