Interesting and sad demographic about disease in Africa from the newspaper, Al Jazeera. Although a child dies from malaria every 60 seconds, tuberculosis and especially aids, have a huge impact. You can listen to a short documentary about the crisis here.

The impact of malaria on Africa is an important topic that the Tony Blair organization,  Face to Faith, discusses every year on World Malaria Day.
