Why do we care more about baldness than malaria? - The Independent

Why do we care more about baldness than malaria? - The Independent | Inspiring Futures:Uganda | Scoop.it
The Independent
Why do we care more about baldness than malaria?
The Independent
The transmission of the disease can be controlled by distributing cheap mosquito nets treated with insecticides.
Sarah Morton's insight:

We dont have a cure for Malaria because it is not the priority for researchers. It is not the priority for researchers as it is not a money maker. This article demonstrates the power of markets and its negative effects on society. 

 

This view is shared by Joe Stiglitz, one of my fav economists. 

 

The need for a stronger government to offset the power of markets.

Red Nose Day and aid: funny money

Red Nose Day and aid: funny money | Inspiring Futures:Uganda | Scoop.it
Editorial: The message Red Nose Day really needs to drive home is the value of real, sustainable development spending (RT @OxfamSkipton: Red Nose Day is fun but let's build a world where people can buy their own mosquito nets.
Sarah Morton's insight:

"This is the message the NGOs that benefit from your generosity need to get across. Getting aid right is hard. It doesn't always work. But not doing it would be immoral, and short-sighted."

Food for thought re. how to get support for international development. The importance of choice, perception vs fact, and communication.
