About Malaria No More UK
Malaria has been described as the oldest killer disease in history. Even now, despite recent progress, it claims the life of a child every minute.
Malaria No More UK (MNMUK) brings proven global experience and expertise in advocacy and creative communications to the zero-malaria fight. From our locations in London, UK and Nairobi, Kenya we aim to accelerate an end to this deadly disease by:
- Securing leadership and investment globally and in the UK
- Building a powerful, united voice for the global malaria campaign to hold leaders to account
- Strengthening local advocacy capacity in key countries in Africa
Since 2000, the world has made enormous progress. The global malaria fight is becoming the biggest public health success story in history, and we are determined to maintain momentum.
