      I think finding a cure for malaria is extremely important. There are roughly 200 million cases of it per yeat but it rarely gets publicised

      I think finding cures for diseases that are deadly in the developing world are important, like malaria and sleeping sickness. We don’t think about it that much in the western world because it doesn’t affect us that much, but across the world these diseases are unnecessarily deadly.

      All diseases are worthy of cures and we should be looking to develop cheap and available medicines for all.
