World Community Grid : GO Fight Against Malaria

After three months of crunching numbers for the World Community Grid on solar panels, better water, aids and cancer, I am joining their new project due to combat malaria. Here is why you should join the fight :

Malaria is one of the three deadliest infectious diseases on earth and is caused by parasites that infect both humans and animals. (…)  Malaria initially causes fevers and headaches, and in severe cases it leads to comas or death. “

” Plasmodium falciparum, the parasite that causes the deadliest form of malaria, kills more people than any other parasite on the planet. Over 3 billion people are at risk of being infected with malaria.
