Every minute a child dies of malaria ... yet it is a preventable and treatable disease! An estimated 655,000 people died of malaria in 2010, despite the fact that deaths from malaria have decreased by 25% since 2000.
Ending deaths by malaria requires a comprehensive set of solutions including the distribution of mosquito nets, education in endemic countries, insecticide spraying and the availability of anti-malarial drugs. Research into vaccines and anti-malarial technologies are also crucial in the effort to eradicate the disease.
Malaria No More is determined to help the world reach the global goal of near zero malaria deaths in Africa by 2015. Pledge to learn more about the Malaria No More group and their groundbreaking work to help end malaria, and assist them if you can!
