We have the tools to end deaths from malaria
Malaria deaths in Africa are down by 33% in the last six years, but we must expand access to existing tools and develop new ones to win this fight.
Rapid-diagnostic tests (RDTs) are expanding the world’s ability to confirm malaria cases in remote settings, ensuring that people get the right treatment when and where they need it.
Artemisinin-based combination therapies (ACTs) are the frontline treatment for malaria. A full-course of life-saving malaria treatment for children costs just $1 and cures a child in one to three days.
Long-lasting insecticide treated bed nets (LLINs) prevent malaria by creating a protective barrier against mosquitoes at night, when transmissions occur, and can cover two people per net.
Targeted Insecticide Spraying
Indoor Residual Spraying, or spraying on the inside walls of homes helps kill mosquitoes and reduce the rate of malaria transmission.Read our DDT Policy »
Foreign aid represents less than 1% of the U.S. federal budget, but it makes a huge difference. By bridging the current funding gap and helping countries deliver life-saving tools, we can keep the drive toward zero malaria deaths going.
Scientists and organizations around the world are working together to accelerate the development of a malaria vaccine and ensure its availability in the developing world. *In development
