World Malaria Day. Mobilising to Save Lives. The Nigerian context. Nigeria has the second greatest burden of malaria in the world. Malaria accounts for 25% of under-5 mortality, 30% childhood mortality and 11% maternal mortality in Nigeria.
Mobilising to Save Lives
………so this is why organisations like NOW & AWWA are needed
We want our members to become advocates - Beyond education and raising awareness we want members to become active in lobbying for change in policy in the UK and back home.
We will train our members on advocacy and co-ordinate and mobilise people to take action in the fight against malaria.
This is what we feel we have achieved by joining with this partnership on World Malaria Day - that we are making meaningful connections and finding solutions where all partners are equal.
