ABSTRACT
The article criticizes U.S. President George W. Bush for underscoring the country's determination to help reduce the incidence of malaria worldwide. Bush proposed to spend an additional $1.2 billion over five years to achieve its goal. The use of DDT to eradicate malaria is strongly opposed by extremist environmentalists. It also comments on the slow effort of the U.S. Agency for International Development in advocating the vigorous use of DDT to combat malaria.
