The Family of Rotary involved  with Malaria elimination throughout the world are delighted to read of two Knighthood awards in the 2012 Queen’s New Year Honours list.

Brian Greenwood Professor of Clinical Tropical Medicine at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine for his services to Malaria research in Africa and Andrew Witty, Chief Executive of drugs giant GlaxoSmithKline for services to the Economy and to the UK Pharmaceutical Industry. GSK constantly involved researching for a Malaria vaccine.

We thank  them both for their continued efforts to bring to  an end the devastating death rate of 3,000 daily in Sub Saharan Africa  through contracting Malaria.
