Travel to Cambodia on Impatient Optimists with John Murphy, a senior writer here at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation who recently returned from this region of the world. This is the last of John’s posts, “The Frontlines of Malaria,” bringing us the real stories of women, men, and children affected by malaria, as well as health workers, working to prevent, treat, and end malaria.
