Imagine No Malaria 2016


Good News: Malaria is 100% Preventable

Unlike many other diseases that are awaiting a cure, malaria was eliminated in the U.S. in the 1950s. However, in Sub-Saharan Africa, malaria continues to kill a child every 2 minutes.

But, there is hope! Imagine No Malaria is part of a global partnership;  and together with our partners, our generation can beat malaria once and for all. By improving the ways people fight the disease using bed nets, providing access to diagnostic tests and medicine, draining standing water, and improving sanitation we have already helped reduce malaria deaths by more than half. Imagine No Malaria combines integrated health infrastructure, education and advocacy to address death and the debilitating effects of malaria in sub-Saharan Africa.

Four times the number of children in Sub-Saharan Africa are surviving – and not dying from malaria – than when Imagine No Malaria launched just five years ago. When we began this initiative, a child died from malaria every 30 seconds. According to the World Health Organization’s World Malaria Report released recently, we have now turned back the death clock to 2 full minutes.

Malaria IS preventable, treatable, and beatable. With your support, we will continue to work with the hope and determination that NO child should die from a preventable and treatable disease.
