End Malaria For Good

Every two minutes, a child dies of malaria – a deadly but preventable disease. Over the last 10 years, Americans and people around the world have rallied together to make progress in the fight to end malaria, with 6.2 million lives saved. But there's still work to be done. In his 2016 State of the Union address, President Barack Obama called his shot by calling on Congress to continue strong bipartisan US leadership in ending malaria. We’re in the fourth quarter of this fight. If we work together, we can be the generation to end malaria for good.

No, you don’t have to donate, but we hope you will help us save lives! Malaria is a completely preventable and treatable disease and your contribution would support proven life-saving solutions and strategies to protect children and families from this disease.

No! We hope you’ll join us and lead the charge in rallying your community- your family, neighbors, teammates, colleagues, or fellow congregants - to help us save lives from malaria.

Every two minutes, a child dies from malaria, a disease caused by a single mosquito bite. Malaria is one of the biggest killers of children and pregnant women in the world, yet it is entirely preventable and treatable. Malaria-carrying mosquitoes only bite at night, so a simple net hung over their bed can protect a family from this deadly disease. Learn more about malaria here.

Malaria is completely preventable and treatable. Bed nets are a proven, life-saving, and cost-effective way to prevent malaria. Other interventions such as indoor residual spraying, rapid diagnostic tests and effective treatments are also critically important. Advocacy and communications are key to keeping malaria on the agenda and ensuring sufficient funding to sustain the fight and ultimately end the disease.

Every two minutes, a child dies from malaria. This is unacceptable. But the world has made tremendous progress. Together, we have cut deaths in half over the last 15 years. The United States has been a critical global leader in the fight, primarily through its support for the President’s Malaria Initiative (within USAID) and the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. President Barack Obama called on the world to end malaria in his final State of the Union address. We’re in the fourth quarter of this fight. We can be the generation to defeat malaria – but if we let up now, malaria will win.

Funds raised through Call Your Shot will allow Nothing But Nets and Malaria No More to protect children and families from malaria in the short and long-term. Most immediately, we will provide life-saving tools such as insecticide-treated bed nets as well as rapid diagnostic tests and effective treatments. We will lead advocacy and communications efforts to ensure there is sufficient funding from governments and the private sector to sustain the fight and ultimately end the disease.

It costs approximately $10 to purchase, distribute, and provide education to a family about the proper use of an insecticide-treated bed net. We take a comprehensive approach so this support includes training of community healthcare workers, and monitoring and evaluation programs to ensure the successful dissemination of nets and other crucial malaria interventions and treatments.

Nothing But Nets and Malaria No More will deploy funds raised to deliver nets and other crucial anti-malaria strategies efficiently and effectively to have maximum impact. Nothing But Nets works with its UN partners to identify the most vulnerable populations in need, such as refugees and displaced families throughout Africa. In 2016, Nothing But Nets is funding programs in Tanzania, Rwanda, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Central African Republic, Burundi, and South Sudan.

In 2016, Malaria No More will conduct health education and commodity delivery programs in three African countries (Cameroon, Kenya, and Nigeria) and use its proven in-country advocacy and communications model to elevate the malaria issue and generate political will and government funding for malaria. Malaria No More also works with regional partners in Africa, Asia and Latin America, including the African Leaders Malaria Alliance to ensure malaria stays on the agenda and leaders continue to fund the fight.

Nothing But Nets and Malaria No More both have a long-term goal of malaria eradication. We work in some of the biggest donor nations, including the U.S., to raise the awareness, political will and financing needed to save lives, turn the tide against malaria and end the disease for good.

Now in its tenth year, Nothing But Nets is the world’s largest, grassroots campaign to save lives by preventing malaria, a disease which claims the life of a child every two minutes. Inspired by sports columnist Rick Reilly, hundreds of thousands of people have joined the campaign that was created by the United Nations Foundation in 2006. Nothing But Nets has raised $60 million to help deliver nearly ten million bed nets to families in need, along with other crucial malaria interventions. In addition to delivering malaria interventions with its UN partners, Nothing But Nets raises awareness and voices to advocate for critical malaria funding for the U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative and The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. For more information, please visit NothingButNets.net.

Malaria No More is determined to end deaths from malaria. We're helping the world get it done by engaging global leaders, rallying the public, developing innovative approaches and delivering life-saving tools and education to families across Africa. Founded in 2006 by business leaders Ray Chambers and Peter Chernin, Malaria No More is working to create a world in which no one dies from a mosquito bite.
