                 PREFACE FOR BLUE NILE MONGRAPH ONE

This Monograph is a polemic about the fight against malaria in Africa. It was written in anger and some bitterness, after a frustrating year with the US Presidential Malaria Initiative (PMI) in Angola. But donít assume that my passion means that I know how to control malaria in Africa, despite 45 years of experience there, which you can review in my resume.

If I knew the answers, I never would have resigned in 2006 from the PMI. I would have stayed on, and tried to expand a successful strategy to all of Africa. But because we did not have anything even approaching a successful strategy, I want instead to tell you what I saw that was wrong with the PMI, and with all the other disjointed actions against malaria throughout the continent, especially those of UN agencies.

Maybe if you can see the problem, you can help us start on a new path. I write this complaint, with some suggestions - because it is urgent that we find a way right now to creatively channel the current global good will and enthusiasm for malaria control.
