What do Beat Malaria Champions do?

Utilizing the tools and resources provided by United to Beat Malaria, our champions find new and creative ways to grow the movement. By joining webinars, attending United to Beat Malaria events, and working with the United to Beat Malaria team, these advocates are empowered in their to work to defeat malaria in their communities.

Champions hold in-district and Capitol Hill meetings advocating for full funding of the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria, the President’s Malaria Initiative, and the UN as well as fundraise for our work to protect families from this deadly disease. They build critical community awareness by hosting events, recruiting new Champions, and engaging the media – and they are an indispensable piece of our work to defeat malaria.
