Working Together To Beat Malaria

For half of our world, every day is a fight against malaria. This devastating disease causes sickness and death, reduces productivity, fuels poverty and creates hunger, especially in impoverished, rural farming communities. We will connect the smartest minds in public health and science to be a force for change. I am truly optimistic that we can be the generation to end malaria.

Collaborating to combat insecticide resistance

BASF, MedAccess and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have announced an agreement to facilitate the supply of 35 million Interceptor® G2 mosquito nets to countries where insecticide resistance is hindering the fight against malaria. The four-year agreement accelerates access to this innovative new mosquito-control technology to communities with the greatest needs.

Agricultural Industry Unites Against Malaria

BASF and the world's leading crop protection companies are collaborating in a commitment called "ZERO by 40" to support the research, development and supply of innovative products to save lives and help eradicate malaria by 2040.

8 Million Nets In Mali
