This video segment adapted from Rx for Survival tells the story of Dr. Fred Soper and his efforts to eliminate malaria. Dr. Soper targeted the Anopheles gambiae mosquito, the species known to spread malaria. He devised a strategy that included destroying breeding sites and controlled spraying of a pesticide known as DDT. The video explains why Soper's global campaign ultimately stalled, before it reached the African continent, and why DDT was almost uniformly banned from use. The video concludes with some experts suggesting that it may be time to reconsider using DDT to save African lives. A background essay, discussion questions, and standards correlations are also provided.
