    There are safe, effective, and affordable tools to prevent and treat malaria.

    Between 2000 and 2006, several countries in Africa saw a 50 percent decrease in malaria by using a combined set of effective interventions, including insecticide-treated bed nets and indoor spraying of homes with insecticides to control mosquitoes, and drug treatments to prevent and cure malaria.


    However, malaria still kills millions of poor people in developing countries and cripples their economies.

    Malaria causes nearly 1 million deaths per year, and 85 percent of those who die are children under 5 years of age. Ninety percent of malaria deaths occur in Africa, where the financial cost of malaria is crippling economic development due to the high cost of medicines and reduced productivity.


    The fight against malaria is threatened by growing weaknesses of current tools.

    Mosquitoes are becoming resistant to insecticides used in bed nets and sprays, and malaria parasites are becoming resistant to today’s drugs. New methods for controlling mosquitoes and treatments are urgently needed if malaria is to be eradicated.


    We aim to improve existing and develop new tools to prevent and treat malaria. Our long-term goal is to eradicate this deadly disease.”
