Sick at the World Bank
Bate investigates the failings of the World Bank in treating malaria. He cites a recent article that he coauthored in the medical journal, Lancet, that found that the World Bank failed to properly treat millions of victims of malaria, wasting money and lives in the process.
Six years ago, the Bank made a promise to Africa's heads of state that it would expedite $300—500 million to control malaria on their home continent. It was a landmark promise, but one that today the Bank admits it never honored. Some years and millions of lost lives later, the Bank is keen to get past that failure, and has launched another malaria plan, entailing $250—500 million (i.e. less money) of its own budget.
