    schema:reviewBody ""An estimated 500 million cases of malaria occur each year, taking the lives of 1 million people, including 3,000 children each day. Ninety percent of these deaths occur in Sub-Saharan Africa, where the disease kills more children than any other. Malaria is not only a major public health issue but also a broader development problem that costs Africa US$12 billion a year, stalling economic and social development." "In 2005, the World Bank reaffirmed its commitment to malaria control by launching the Booster Program for Malaria Control in Africa, a 10-year initiative that in its first three years committed over US$470 million to controlling malaria in Africa. By combining disease control interventions and health systems strengthening, Phase I of the program has contributed significantly to the global effort to fight the disease. The Booster Program has begun implementation of its second three-year phase through which the World Bank, as one of the three major financiers of malaria control in Africa, will intensify its efforts to help more African countries to achieve and sustain large-scale impact on malaria."--BOOK JACKET." ;
