Dr Sonia Sachs talks about Madonna and Africa

Dr Sonia Sachs is the pediatrician who was with Madonna in Malawi when the singer met one-year old David Banda. In this interview with The Huffington Post Sonia talks about her work in Africa and her thoughts about Madonna's work in Malawi:

The problem is straightforward: more than nine million children die each year in Africa. That is the number of people in the entire state of New Jersey.
African kids die from infectious diseases such as HIV, TB, malaria, respiratory illnesses, diarrhea, worms, parasites, and vaccine-preventable diseases, malnutrition and - far too often - during childbirth itself.
In an exclusive interview with HuffPo, Sonia Ehrlich Sachs, M.D., M.P.H. spoke to me about Africa, child mortality, and an intelligent, charismatic women who has learned much about both: Madonna.
