On World Malaria Day, I reflect on my time as a teacher in Africa 30 years ago, when my students routinely fell ill with malaria and died. I lost students, parents lost their children, and villages lost entire generations to this deadly disease. This is why I am so proud of the transformative work the U.S. President's Malaria Initiative (PMI) does each day to bring cost-effective, life-saving tools, such as bed nets, insecticides, and medicines to people where they live.
