McCain and Obama Promise to Target Malaria

How times have changed. Both Senators McCain and Obama have made commitments at the CGI meeting to eliminate the number of deaths due to malaria if they are elected President. Note, this is different from eradicating the disease altogether.

McCain addressed the meeting in person. Also in attendance were Cindy McCain and Sarah Palin. Obama spoke via satellite due to a previous commitment elsewhere.

Full text of McCain's speech is here and C-Span has video here. Couldn't find text of Obama's speech but the video is here.

Update: here's the text for Obama's speech.

McCain and Obama have also responded to our voter education initiative, Your Candidates-Your Health, at www.yourcandidatesyourhealth.org. The candidates have answered questions we asked on health, research and science.

In addition, all candidates for Congress have been asked similar questions, and their responses can be compared to public opinion poll data showing where the American public stands on these important issues.

Hope this information is useful to you and your readers! Thanks.
