For Dr. Regina Rabinovich, the battle against malaria is personal. Having contracted malaria on a research trip to Gambia, she realized the devastating impact of the disease on the economically downtrodden populations of Africa.
As director of the Global Health Program's Infectious Diseases Development team at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Rabinovich oversees the development and implementation of strategies for the prevention, treatment, and control of diseases like HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, malaria, and pneumonia, which have particular relevance to global health. Given the high cost of research and development and little incentive for pharmaceutical companies to make vaccines for poor countries, Rabinovich has embarked on a personal crusade to create awareness.
