Against Malaria Foundation

  • The problem: Malaria

    • Half a billion fall ill each year – over a million die

    • Every 30 seconds, a child dies of malaria

  • The solution: Insecticide Treated Bednets

    • Nets cost only $5, and protect an average of 2 people apiece

    • Killing mosquitoes reduces risk of disease for entire community

  • The opportunity: A malaria free world

    • ~$2000 in nets can save a child’s life, while also improving the health of many more people

    • $1 spent fighting malaria improves Africa’s GDP by $12

    • Malaria is solvable- e.g. Bhutan reduced malaria rate by 98% from 1994-2010

  • Why AMF?

    • All donations go to fund additional nets

    • One of charity evaluator GiveWell’s top recommendations
