IT'S TIME TO END IT FOR GOOD.
On this day in 1897, Sir Ronald Ross discovered that female mosquitoes transmit malaria between humans. Since then, we've followed it's devastating effect. In fact, it’s said to have killed half the people that ever lived - 54 billion people. But we have come close to eliminating this deadly disease before and we know we can do it again.

Mary’s daughter Lucy suffered with cerebral malaria – one of the worst forms of the disease. She was in hospital for over a week to get life-saving treatment, which, aside from the agony of watching your child suffer, came at a huge financial cost to Mary and their family.
We’re working with governments to ensure they have the health systems in place to protect communities like Mary’s. Lucy’s daughter is well and back at school now. Since her time in hospital their neighbour has become a Community Health Worker and is teaching the community how to keep themselves protected.
“Malaria is very common in my village... I now understand how to protect my family better thanks to the information from my neighbour…”
