World Malaria Day is fast approaching on Saturday, April 25th, and this year we have much to celebrate. Since 2004 the global community has distributed one billion nets, saving more than 4 million lives. Created as part of the One Billion Nets campaign, the video below marks this accomplishment through the touching story of the Ochieng family. It highlights the incredible successes in malaria control in Africa to date and reminds us that much more work remains.
Look closely and you’ll see staff from PSI’s network member PS Kenya distributing malaria nets to a community. The largest net distributor in the world, PSI has delivered almost a quarter of the world’s long-lasting insecticide-treated nets.
#DefeatMalaria this #WorldMalariaDay. Special thanks to Malaria No More for the production of the video. Check it out below.
