What if there was an herb that could defeat the deadly malaria parasite and save a thousand lives per day, every day? One you could grow in your backyard, which costs next to nothing, and could be easily available for everybody in need? Sound good? Not everybody thinks so. Big pharma corporations fear for their profits. Big donors like Bill Gates want high tech science to provide commercial solutions instead of low tech community programs. And nobody, including the World Health Organization, seems to believe that Africans--the people most affected by malaria--can find their own solutions. The Fever is a passionate account of three amazing people in Kenya and Uganda, who show how local solutions could save millions of lives. It is also a case study in greed and courage.
