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.
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.
