David Beckham Launches Anti Malaria Campaign

Soccer God David Beckham and Britain's Prime Minister Gordon Brown have joined forces to help fight Malaria.

Becks and Brown just launched their anti-malaria campaign, Malaria No More UK, which is part of a global effort to put an end to the suffering and death caused by malaria.

Despite being easily treatable, half the world's population is at risk from the illness so Becks wants to make sure he's doing anything in his power to wipe out Malaria for good.

He says, "It's truly incredible to think we can stop this killer disease forever and it's such a simple thing to do.

"For less than the cost of a football you can protect a family from dying. I urge the U.K. public to get behind the Malaria No More UK campaign to save a life and make malaria no more."
