Malaria assignment & follow-up reading

Here again is the Malaria handout from today’s class.

The class/homework assignment is to prepare a chart comparing & contrasting AIDS and Malaria – their characteristics, the challenges of fighting them in Africa, etc. Some similarities and differences will be obvious, and some will require thought + analysis to draw connections. The purpose of the assignment is to push you towards that thought and analysis.

Also, read these two Economist articles (in PDF format) as follow-up:

  • This piece addresses one of the links between AIDS and malaria: they make each other worse.
  • This one updates the current state of affairs in Zimbabwe
