The next part of the exhibition was about Malaria, a major scourge of developing countries. Mr Monkey examined some giant insects, wax models made in 1914 when the Wellcome Museum opened, and then looked at a display of anti-malaria drugs and treatments. Some of these were fakes that do absolutely nothing to help the people who've spent what little money they have on them.
