"President Obama is committed to making the United States a global leader in ending deaths from malaria by 2015," said Rice, United States ambassador to the UN.
It is said that every 30 seconds some one dies of malaria in Africa and every year Mosquitoes bites claim the life of a million people.
Most Africans were thrilled by these news mostly because they all know someone who died from this horrible disease; maybe a relative, a friend or at least a neighbour.
Malaria can be prevented. Ann Veneman, executive director of the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) said: "Malaria can become a disease of the past."
At the same time, researchers at the Glasgow university have created a chip that can detect malaria. "The chip can give us a result in as little as half an hour." said Dr Heather Ferguson, a Malaria researcher.
Africans welcomed Soccer legend David Beckham and British tennis player Andy Murray who have launched a new charity to help fight Malaria.
