World Bank Could Have Made A World of Difference to Fight Malaria, Yet It Failed!
The World Bank has responded saying that its malaria programs were understaffed and underfinanced, but did not agree to the implication of resorting to false statistics or paying for redundant medicines. The bank also confirmed that the program to fight malaria had been revived and rejuvenated in the past year.
Suprotik Basu, a public health specialist in the bank's malaria program said,"The story captures a lot of the bank's shortcomings from a year ago. But now we've had a year of progress."
