About Us

We can be the generation to beat malaria.

Every person around the world deserves to live a healthy, fulfilled life, but malaria threatens this promise for many of the world’s most vulnerable people, including young children, women and refugees. Despite tremendous progress made, a child still dies nearly every minute from the disease. This is a historic injustice that can — and must — be stopped through collective action. United, we will beat malaria and create a healthier, more equitable world for all.

Who We Are

United to Beat Malaria, a global grassroots campaign of the UN Foundation, brings together a diverse set of partners, influencers and supporters across the U.S. and around the world to take urgent action to end malaria.

For more than 15 years, United to Beat Malaria (previously known as Nothing But Nets) has helped protect more than 39 million of the world’s most vulnerable people by providing bed nets and other life-saving tools, in addition to successfully advocating for increased U.S. leadership and funding for global malaria programs.

Despite tremendous progress made, a child dies nearly every minute from this entirely preventable and treatable disease. We know that a challenge of this magnitude requires individual and collective global action. That’s why United to Beat Malaria is rising to the challenge to equip and mobilize engaged global citizens and partners to raise awareness, funds and voices to advocate for a malaria-free world.

What We Do

By coordinating closely with UN agencies, the RBM Partnership to End Malaria, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the private sector and civil society, we channel and mobilize lifesaving resources to communities on the frontlines of the fight against malaria, prioritizing the most vulnerable and marginalized populations.

We know that we need a holistic strategy to end malaria once and for all: That’s why we advocate for a full spectrum of innovative tools and strategies, increased political will and resources.

United, we can be the generation to beat malaria and create a healthier, more equitable world for all.

Who We Work to Protect

Nearly every minute, somewhere in the world, a child dies from malaria. We work with UN partners like UNICEF and UNHCR to protect refugees and families who are most vulnerable to malaria.

Some have fled conflict, others have been displaced by natural disasters or political unrest and have left everything behind. After all they have endured, these families shouldn’t have to fear a deadly mosquito bite. We are committed to protecting them so they can be healthy and thrive.

Malaria is a historic injustice that mirrors the inequities in our society. Malaria disproportionately impacts young children, pregnant women and those who are at the greatest risk of other major global challenges: poverty, the refugee crisis, climate change and rampant inequities in access to quality health services.
