Bush calls for use of nets in malaria war

Nationmedia.com "President George W Bush has urged African countries to fight malaria, the continent’s leading killer disease, through the use of treated bed nets.
He said there was significant progress made in controlling the mosquito-borne disease with the use of bed nets treated with insecticides.
The US president made the plea after visiting the Arumeru District Hospital in Tengeru on the outskirts of Arusha. During the visit, he distributed bed nets to patients.
President Bush, who arrived at the hospital at 10.40am, said his government launched the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI) in 2005 because it believed every human life was valuable."
