Bart, Inga and the Team: The success of MalariaWorld is really a product of your teamwork and your energy. It provides a real point of contact for all of us globally interested in malaria, so much so that the size and breadth of your membership and readership is the validation. You provide what we all need and that is a forum where one can express ideas and get more or less instant feedback, where we speak to our colleagues and our critics and listen and where real issues in the control of malaria are expressed and confronted. One can go on, but I want to keep this accolade brief. My heartiest congratulations! you have harnessed the web in a realistic manner to help all of us confront this horrific disease.
