QUOTE OF THE DAY
President Bush Tours Meru District Hospital, Discusses Malaria
Meru District Hospital
Arusha, Tanzania

THE PRESIDENT: Habari zenu. We have just toured the hospital here, which is on the forefront of Tanzania's fight against malaria. I want thank you, Doc, for leading the tour, and for your compassion. I appreciate the Commissioner welcoming us to the district. I also want to thank Minister Mwakyusa for joining us here in Arusha. I'm grateful to members of the Diplomatic Corps who have joined us.

During the visit at this hospital we met pregnant women who will receive insecticide-treated bed nets. We witnessed a pediatric ward and observed children being diagnosed and treated. We saw how an historic partnership is saving lives across the continent of Africa.

For years malaria has been a health crisis in sub-Sahara Africa. The disease keeps sick workers home, schoolyards quiet, communities in mourning. The suffering caused by malaria is needless and every death caused by malaria is unacceptable. It is unacceptable. It is unacceptable to people here in Africa, who see their families devastated and economies crippled. It is unacceptable to people in the United States, who believe every human life has value, and that the power to save lives comes with the moral obligation to use it.

In 2005, I announced that the United States would work to save lives through our Malaria Initiative. Under this five-year, $1.2 billion program, we're working with 15 African countries to cut malaria-related deaths by half. Our strategy to achieve this goal is straightforward. First, the initiative supports indoor residual spraying to keep deadly mosquitoes at bay. Here in Tanzania spraying campaigns have reached hundreds of thousands of homes, and have protected more than a million people. Second, the initiative supports treatment for those who are most vulnerable to malaria, especially pregnant women. Here in Tanzania, more than 2,400 health workers have been trained to provide specialized treatment that prevents malaria in expectant mothers. Third, the initiative provides life-saving drugs. Here in Tanzania, the program has supported more than a million courses of treatment, and has trained more than 5,000 health workers to use them.

Fourth, the initiative supports the distribution of insecticide-treated bed nets, and Laura and I are about to distribute some of those bed nets. This is one of the simplest technologies imaginable, but it's also one of the most effective. Here in Tanzania, we're working with the government and partners such as the Global Fund to provide bed net vouchers for infants and pregnant mothers. Women can use these vouchers to buy bed nets at local shops at a huge discount. So far, an estimated 5 million vouchers have been distributed through these programs.

Today, I'm pleased to announce new steps in the bed net campaign. Within the next six months, the United States and Tanzania, in partnership with the World Bank and the Global Fund, will begin distributing 5.2 million free bed nets. This ambitious nationwide program will provide enough nets to protect every child between the ages of one and five in Tanzania.

That isn't exactly Zulu on the bottom of that billboard (of which I speak some) but it's similar.

Africa is a grand place, as long as you don't have to make a living there. Don't let anyone tell you different.

Some of us get nervous WHEN they return to the White House! It’s wonderful to see how the people of Tanzania are so appreciative of what the US has done through President Bush.

The day will come when Americans appreciate him and all he’s done for us over the past 7 years. I am really going to miss President and Mrs. Bush when he leaves office, but happy for them that they will be enjoying a well-deserved retirement in Crawford, away from the DC vultures.

I am with you. I will miss them, but they have REALLY earned
their retirement and some much-needed rest and quiet.

I don’t think W can be quiet long, though. He’s a high-energy
kind of a guy! He’ll enjoy doing lots of work, and I hope
he has a speech tour and comes our way. Maybe I’d finally
get to see him in person. I work in Midland and STILL have
never seen him! LOL!

They do look like they are having a good time there in Tnaznia!
It’s good to be appreciated! Too bad it can’t happen here.

W and Laura look so relaxed. I’m so glad that they are having such an enjoyable time! They deserve it!

I’m so glad I took a break from grading papers and came to the Dose! What great pictures! Why do the people of Africa love him so? We’ve given money for years, so it can’t be just the money. Many organizations give money for AIDS, so it can’t be just that.

I need to get one of those cloths with GWB’s picture on it!

Man, I’m still smiling! I just love to see our guy getting his props!

As usual a wonderful dose! It is very moving to see the appreciation this good man is getting in Africa. They love him almost as much as we do!

It seems that all the photos are by White House Staff. Are there any members of the Press Corps traveling with the President? I’m sure they want to make him invisible, but no photos by them?

The WH photos are beautiful, and thanks for taking the time to share with us all the work that you do to get them on this thread.

Thank you for this special Dose, Snugs :)

Sorry the computer wasn't cooperating last night--I know how frustrating that is, especially with a lot of photos to post.

You deserve a

God bless you!
