The author reflects on the failing moves of the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) to solve malaria troubles in Africa. According to him, CIDA, with its participation with the "Roll Back Malaria" (RBM) campaign, have been doing slow in its assignments. He argues that the agency has been wasting money on pseudoscience. He revealed that the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) thinks Canada should follow the schemes from the U.S. to improve its initiatives.
