Together, we've made historic progress in the malaria fight this year. But, for the first time since our founding, malaria is on the rise. See how we're stepping up our efforts in response.
BECAUSE NO ONE SHOULD DIE OF A MOSQUITO BITE.
We’re mobilizing the political commitment, funding, and innovation required to achieve what would be one of the greatest humanitarian accomplishments—eliminating malaria for good.
TOGETHER, WE FUEL THE FIGHT.
2017: A TURNING POINT
2017 saw key wins in the malaria fight as well as a critical inflection point after a decade of unprecedented progress. Here are some of the strides our community took in the malaria fight, thanks to your loyal support.
> 250 MILLION
BED NETS DELIVERED GLOBALLY
(THE HIGHEST EVER)
COUNTRIES REPORTED FEWER THAN
10K MALARIA CASES
A GLOBAL WAKE-UP CALL
For the first time in Malaria No More’s history, the WHO’s World Malaria Report 2017 showed an increase in the global malaria burden. Either we do what’s necessary to end the world’s oldest disease, or we let malaria win. The stakes couldn’t be higher: millions of lives and trillions of dollars in economic productivity are at risk.
our work isn't done
in 2016, there were...
CASES OF MALARIA (INCREASE OF ABOUT 5M OVER 2015)
DEATHS FROM MALARIA GLOBALLY
FUTURE BURDEN OF MALARIA
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s annual ‘Goalkeepers’ report illustrates the potential best- and worst-case 2030 scenarios for key global health issues.
Specifically, what could happen with strong leadership, innovation and investment and, starkly, what could happen if attention and funding waned. Malaria shows the widest swing between best-and-worst case scenarios. Clearly, our efforts will determine which future comes to pass.
Malaria No More Is Fueling The Fight
In response to this challenge, MNM is expanding our efforts by driving progress, innovation, and partnerships across five continents.
GLOBAL CAMPAIGN LAUNCH
DAVID BECKHAM VS 10,000 MOSQUITOES?
Join David Beckham in declaring “Malaria Must Die, So Millions Can Live” by sharing this video with your social network. With Malaria No More’s support, our MNM UK colleagues developed this global campaign featuring Beckham, a longtime champion in the malaria fight, to build a large rallying cry across the globe and to urge action when leaders from 52 Commonwealth countries convene at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in London this April.
EXPANSION TO INDIA
SUPPORTING INDIA’S 2030 ELIMINATION GOAL
MNM was invited by the Odisha state government, a state in eastern India that makes up 41% of the nation’s malaria burden, to provide technical, advocacy, and communications support to strengthen malaria elimination efforts. This multi-pronged approach is an innovative way to help Odisha become a pioneer and platform in innovation areas including data, mobile, and the private sector, and is aimed at producing a replicable model for other states to accelerate the country’s drive toward elimination milestones.
SPREADING THE WORD
On The Frontlines Of Malaria Elimination
MNM brought journalists from the U.S., Nigeria, India, and Zambia to see first-hand Zambia’s political commitment and innovative efforts, in collaboration with U.S. partners, to eliminate malaria. Zambia’s Southern Province has almost eliminated malaria, is expanding its successful program to other provinces, and Zambia’s President set 2021 as the country’s target for malaria elimination—9 years ahead of a 2030 goal. Read one of the stories from the trip here.
FROM OUR CEO: A MOMENT OF TRUTH
Over the past decade, we’ve achieved historic progress in the malaria fight together, with more than 7 million lives saved and more than 1 billion malaria cases averted. Malaria has proven to be one of the very best humanitarian investments in the world today, creating $20 in economic benefits for every dollar that’s invested in malaria control.
Now, for the first time in Malaria No More’s history, the world is seeing a malaria burden that is increasing. The WHO’s World Malaria Report 2017 shows 5.4 million new cases of malaria compared to the previous year. Of those cases, 445,000 people—mostly pregnant women and children under the age of 5 in sub-Saharan Africa—died from a mosquito bite.
We are now witnessing the limit of what current tools and current levels of funding can achieve. These findings present an urgent challenge and a clear choice: either we do what’s needed to end this terrible disease, or we let malaria resurge at the potential cost of millions of lives and trillions of dollars in economic benefits.
Your continued support for our life-saving work is vital—now more than ever. Join us in the fight to make malaria no more.
