Fighting malaria

You don't often hear good news about malaria. So here's some: since 2000 child malaria death rates in Africa have dropped by 71%. In short, we're winning.

But malaria still kills over 250,000 children under five each year in Africa. Yet we have the tools to fight this deadly disease. Your support allows us to carry on saving countless lives.
