Fight The Bite
Each year on 25 April, we raise our voices on World Malaria Day to call for urgent global action in the fight against malaria, which kills a child every minute. Each year, we rally around a theme, and each year we make as much noise as we can to highlight the heavy cost of malaria -- to lives and livelihoods -- and the incredible opportunities the world would see through ending it. But each year, progress continues to stall.
WE NEED TO MAKE SURE NO ONE IS LEFT BEHIND.
No more excuses. It's time to deliver zero malaria.
This year, it's time to deliver. We're running out of time and funds to turn the tide against this deadly disease. Malaria, we're coming for you. We won't let you steal from us anymore.
After years of lagging funding, the slow but steady increase in malaria cases and deaths is a warning sign -- it's critical we get back on the path to elimination before it’s too late. Emerging drug and insecticide resistance as well as climate change threaten to wipe out the last two decades of progress. Malaria will be saved by the bell.
It's now or never. WE ARE THE GENERATION THAT CAN END MALARIA.
We need governments to invest in innovation and tools to fight the disease as well as ensuring those tools get to the people who need them most. We need commitment to the goal: reduce malaria cases and deaths by 90% by 2030. To get malaria on the ropes and reach the final round, we must act now.
Kenya's Malaria Youth Army are helping lead the fight
Ending malaria means we need everyone to get involved and be a part of the fight to end this deadly disease. The Malaria Youth Army is doing just that through thier road show that is taking in three counties across Kenya to deliver vital information to communities in the hardest malaria hit regions.
All this is alongside an amazing awareness campaign featuring media and radio activities.
