Thank you, Dan

Thank you, Dan. I have been muttering under my breath about the simplistic approach to malaria eradication (e.g., why buy nets instead of working on water supplies?) for a number of years. I think this is the result of a *communication* agency taking the lead on this project when international development is obviously not their area of expertise. "Imagine No Malaria" is doing a better job of finding holistic solutions than "Nothing But Nets," but we still have a long way to go.

I wish we could connect the church and the academy better in this, since anyone with a modicum of education in international development would recognize exactly what you are pointing out.
