Summary
It is estimated that every 30 seconds a child dies from malaria. Medicines continue to be the main tool in fighting it-but, with growing resistance to existing drugs, there is an urgent need to discover new ones and distribute them at affordable prices in poor, disease-endemic countries. The major obstacle to the discovery of new anti-malarials is the lack of global investment in drug research and development. The enormous costs and time resources needed for R&D-with little or sometimes no prospect of return upon investment once a drug is fully registered and on the market-are usually dissuasive to the large pharmaceutical companies. But there are exceptions. Filmed in Tanzania, Zanzibar, and India, this program tracks the development of a new low-cost drug that could save millions of lives
