FIGHT THE BITE THIS WORLD MALARIA DAY
Malaria is one opponent that doesn't let up. Right now, it holds the title. Right now, we are the challenger. So this World Malaria Day we're demanding more funding and action to put an end to this deadly disease. So long as we have the right tools in the right places... Malaria, you've met your match.
A DEADLY DISEASE IS STEALING OUR FUTURE
Malaria, we won’t let you steal from us anymore. You can’t stop us. It’s not fair that you continue to put half the world in danger, with children and pregnant women in sub-Saharan Africa most at risk. You kill over 600,000 people every year. We won’t stand for it any longer.
CALLING WORLD LEADERS
Over the past 20 years, we've been winning against this deadly disease, saving over 10.6 million lives. But malaria has started to fight back, and deaths are at their highest for nearly a decade.
Now, with some incredible new tools to beat malaria, we’re taking control. To do so we need the commitment and determination from our world leaders. We must make sure our voices are heard ahead of two game-changing summits in Kigali in June and the Global Fund Replenishment in the autumn. Join us and deliver a message of strength along with people from around the world.
