* From the website of the Malaria Consortium: “It is estimated that malaria kills between 70,000 and 100,000 people every year in Uganda, the majority of which are children under the age of five; a death toll that far exceeds that of HIV/AIDS. Uganda has the third largest malaria burden in Africa; 90% of Uganda’s 29.4 million people are at risk from malaria.”
