UN And Gates Foundation Present Vision To Eradicate Malaria By 2040

first_imgA new report released by the United Nations and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation presents a vision to eradicate malaria by 2040 that involves new strategies, tools and financing and urges world leaders to expand their commitments to fight a disease that still kills about one child every minute.The report – From Aspiration to Action: What Will It Take to End Malaria? – urges major donors and malaria-affected countries to expand their commitment to the fight against the disease, noting that eradication could save 11 million lives and unlock $2 trillion in economic benefits.“Over the past 15 years, we have seen tremendous progress in reducing the burden of malaria globally – a direct result of our collective action – and we now stand in the unique position of putting an end to this disease forever,” said Ray Chambers, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Financing the Health Millennium Development Goals and for Malaria.“The next five years are vital for setting in motion an ambitious-yet-achievable plan to eradicate malaria by 2040. We must double down on our commitment and move with deliberate haste to bring in new investments, develop new tools, and implement new regional strategies to see our unified goal of a malaria-free world become a reality.”According to a news release on the report, global investment in malaria has jumped in recent years by 2,000 per cent annually – from just $130 million in 2000 to $2.7 billion in 2013 – fundamentally transforming the fight against the disease.Malaria deaths have fallen dramatically – saving an estimated 6.2 million lives and averting 663 million cases of the disease since 2000 – and more than half of the world’s nations are now malaria free. These gains have accounted for 20 per cent of the total progress that the world has made in reducing maternal and child mortality under the Millennium Development Goals, and they have helped convince Asian and African leaders to commit to malaria elimination by 2040.The challenge, according to Mr. Chambers and Bill Gates, is that one billion people remain infected with the malaria parasite, and half of the world’s children remain vulnerable to death and disability caused by the disease. Malaria still kills about one child every minute.They argue that eradication is ultimately the only feasible solution to this challenge, and assert that the alternative to eradication – controlling the disease forever without eliminating it – is biologically and politically untenable.The report envisions a new approach to eradication that will draw important lessons from past eradication efforts and apply innovative strategies, tools and financing.“Eradication is the only sustainable solution to malaria,” said Mr. Gates. “The alternative would be endless investment in the development of new drugs and insecticides just to stay one step ahead of resistance. The world can’t afford that approach.”last_img read more

Small restaurant owners oppose ban on styrofoam food containers

Restaurant owners like Javier Rodriguez said if the city enacts a ban on polystyrene or styrofoam containers, the cost of switching to a more expensive paper product will have to passed on to customers.Rodriguez and other small restaurant owners said they don’t have the budgets of bigger corporate run restaurants and paying more for the alternative containers would mean making cuts in other areas.“If we get more expenses, we have to cut the labor, we have to cut the hours. It’s not fair for them or for us, too,” Rodriguez said.A study commissioned by the California Restaurant Association looked at the cost of food containers sold in the Los Angeles area. The study found that a 9 inch hinged container made of styrofoam would cost about 10 cents, yet a compostable paper product of the same kind would be around 24 cents, amounting to a 145% increase.There’s a different view of the proposed ban at Ponce’s, a family owned Mexican restaurant in Kensington and now in a second location in Del Sur.The director of operations, Mikey Knab said Ponce’s switched to compostable paper containers about a year and a half ago.Knab said the price difference was a nickel or less and the restaurant did not have to raise its food prices. He said the restaurant was willing to bear the extra cost so that future generations would not be stuck with the cost of an unhealthy planet.“By allowing that plastic into the food system, you’re making everyone else in the world pay that cost, rather than people who are choosing it. So, yes, we could choose not to patronize restaurants that use styrofoam, but that wouldn’t let us choose the fish that come out of the ocean to have that.” Knab said.The proposed ordinance would give small businesses with less than $500,000 in annual sales, a two year period to comply. The city would also allow business owners to ask for a “hardship” exemption to extend that deadline even further.Larger businesses would have to start following the ordinance in 90 days. The San Diego City Council is scheduled to take a final vote on the styrofoam ban on January 8.
