Ros-Lehtinen and the First Lady, teaming up to fight malaria

Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen has teamed up with First Lady Laura Bush and a bipartisan group of House members to launch a Congressional caucus with the aim of coordinating U.S. policy on fighting malaria.

The Miami Republican says the Malaria Caucus will raise awareness about the disease - which kills an estimated 1 million people annually - and ways to prevent its spread. The U.S. since 2005 has taken an anti-malaria initiative aimed at cutting malaria-related deaths by 50 percent in 15 countries, most in tropical Africa.
