About World Malaria Day
This year's timely World Malaria Day theme, "Counting Malaria Out", keeps the pressure on to reach our goal and save lives from this preventable and treatable disease.
Every second counts. The world needs to intensify its efforts in the months to come, building on the momentum of the accomplishments of recent years: significant reductions in deaths, growing political will in Africa and abroad, and unprecedented public awareness. We're in a race to end malaria deaths... and we need your help to get there.
Malaria kills a child in Africa every 30 seconds and costs the continent $12 billion every year in lost productivity. It doesn't have to be this way. We have the tools and the programs in place to end malaria deaths—help us support Africa in its efforts to break the cycle of sickness and poverty.
This World Malaria Day, Malaria No More is urging US leadership for continued support in the winning battle against malaria. Malaria offers an incredible opportunity for return-on-investment—exactly what the world is looking for in this economic climate. Help President Obama keep his campaign promise of joining with the global malaria community to end malaria deaths by 2015.
Join us on World Malaria Day as we focus on "Counting Malaria Out" and be part of the first great humanitarian success story of the 21st century—making malaria no more for once and for all.
