Keynote Address by Ambassador Susan E. Rice, U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations, for World Malaria Day

This is an extraordinary group of people, and if we could bottle the energy and expertise in this room, we would surely have malaria on the run. I’m particularly pleased to be here with Ray Chambers, the UN Special Envoy for the fight against malaria; we have already begun working together, and I look forward to deepening our partnership in the coming months. I would be remiss if I did not single out one of our co-hosts, the great Quincy Jones, whose work to advance religious harmony and solve global problems may prove to be the highest note of his amazing career.

It's also a real pleasure to be here with my valued colleagues from the U.S. government, including Admiral Tim Ziemer of the President's Malaria Initiative and Joshua Dubois of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.
