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 two minutes. Malaria No More UK is part of a global movement that is determined to make this the generation that beats this killer. To realise this vision, we need to mobilise governments, influencers, businesses and the public, inspiring them to commit funds, energy and resources to ending deaths from malaria and wiping out the disease for good. In 2018 Malaria No More UK conceived and delivered The Malaria Summit 2018, at which $4.1 billion was pledged, and 53 Commonwealth leaders committed to halving malaria in their countries by 2023.
