2016 HIGHLIGHTS

In 2016, we celebrated a decade of historic progress. We couldn’t have done it without you.

Take a look at what we accomplished together.

BECAUSE NO CHILD SHOULD DIE OF A MOSQUITO BITE. EVER.

We work with global leaders to mobilize the political will, resources, and innovations to save lives and accomplish malaria eradication within a generation.

TOGETHER, WE FUEL THE FIGHT.

2016: A MILESTONE YEAR

2016 was an exciting year in the malaria fight and we want to share some of the areas where we put your dollars to work. Our community achieved many key, global milestones, including historic declines in cases and deaths, and formally declaring Sri Lanka and Europe malaria-free. It was also an amazing year for Malaria No More’s (MNM’s) work as an organization as we celebrated ten years of remarkable progress.

In 2016, our work spanned five continents, from saving lives to galvanizing leadership and mobilizing resources to end malaria in our lifetimes.

Cameroon

Impact in Cameroon

Through our advocacy, communications, and commodity work with the Cameroonian government and partners we:

Drove a 300% increase in Cameroon’s domestic malaria contribution since 2014

Increased net coverage to 90% among children under 5 through a national mosquito net campaign

Elevating African Leaders

Increased Thought Leader Media Coverage of Malaria in Africa by 500%

Africa has set an ambitious target of ending malaria on the continent and Malaria No More is working to help African leaders meet that goal. MNM’s communications work with the African Leaders Malaria Alliance (ALMA) helped grow thought-leader media coverage by 500% and featured the most respected voices across the continent.

US LEADERSHIP

Since we launched at the White House Summit on Malaria in 2006, MNM has worked across administrations and with bi-partisan congressional champions to expand US leadership in the malaria fight.

US Funding

Growing US Funding

President Obama Proposed $200M Increase in Malaria Funding

Building on President Obama’s call to end malaria in his final State of the Union address to Congress, his FY 2017 budget proposal included a $200 million increase in funding for the President’s Malaria Initiative (PMI). The House of Representatives and Senate followed suit by including significant funding increases for PMI in their appropriations bills.

Thought Leader Media

Innovative Press Trips Shine a Spotlight on the Malaria Fight

In 2016, MNM took journalists to Tanzania and brought nine journalists from the US, Nigeria, Kenya, Senegal, and India to Seattle to highlight ground-breaking malaria innovations and research.

From Our CEO: What’s Next

When we started in 2006, the prospect of “no more” malaria seemed laughably ambitious. The disease was killing nearly a million people every year. Ten years into our mission, with your help and support, the fight against malaria has emerged as one of humanity’s greatest success stories. Smart investments, strong leadership and innovative partnerships have saved the lives of 6.8 million people and averted more than 1 billion cases of malaria. Thank you for your help in achieving this historic progress!

Now, we’re setting our sights on the even more ambitious goal: eradicating malaria within our generation. According to the Economist Magazine, achieving this goal “would rank among humanity’s greatest achievements.” It would save 11 million lives, avert 4 billion cases of malaria, and unlock $2 trillion in economic impact.

Malaria No More is already hard at work to lay the groundwork for this goal. We’ve renewed our partnership with the Gates Foundation to mobilize political will and resources in the malaria fight. We’re demonstrating the potential for impact and domestic political commitment through our work on the ground in Cameroon and Kenya. And we’re working with the Clinton Health Access Initiative to assess needs and opportunities for achieving malaria elimination in India and across the Americas.

But we need your help to continue this momentum. Working together, we can ensure that no mother has to grieve the loss of a child to a mosquito bite. We can be the generation to end one of humanity’s oldest, deadliest diseases.

In the process, we’ll show what it looks like to take on and solve big, stubborn global challenges and leave the world a better, healthier place.

Join us.
