Each year one million individuals die from malaria because they do not have access to malaria medication or cannot afford it. Although the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Clinton Foundation have contributed several hundred million dollars to the battle against malaria, and the latter subsidizes the supply of malaria drugs in some countries, these efforts can only alleviate the problem, but not eliminate it. That could change through the use of a new chemical method for producing the best currently available malaria drug.
