Solving Malaria Around the World
Each year, malaria kills over 1 million people, despite the fact that it can be prevented with a mosquito net and treated for less than $1.50.

But two entrepreneurs are solving this and other big health problems. 

Humanitarian Dr. Eric G. Bing, co-author of Pharmacy on a Bicycle: Innovative Solutions for Global Health and Poverty, joins Dr. Roizen in this segment. In this profoundly important book, Bing and co-author Dr. Marc J. Epstein lay out a solution: a new kind of bottom-up health care delivered at the source. They've seen their model work, and they provide example after example of the extraordinary results it has achieved in Africa, Asia and Latin America. Learn how their simple strategies are saving lives.
