Malaria deaths hugely underestimated

A recent article in the Lancet, which uses a new way of estimating the number of deaths due to malaria, concludes that 1.24 million people died from the disease in 2010 - much higher than previously recognised.

You can read more about the article on the BBC News site and Against Malaria Founder Rob Mather was interviewed by BBC 5 Live this morning. You can hear the interview via the mp3 link: Malaria interview 5 live.mp3 (7.63 mb). There is also a breakdown of the data on the Guardian website.
