indexIn 2013, 584,000 people died from Malaria. Today, half the world’s population (3.2 billion people) is at risk of contracting malaria.

The good news? Since 2000, the global malaria mortality rate has been reduced by 47 percent and an estimated 4.2 million lives have been saved as a result of increased awareness and malaria interventions

Tomorrow, April 25 is World Malaria Day, and there’s something you can do to help save lives from malaria. Nothing But Nets has launched The Million Nets Pledge, a two-year goal to protect refugee families in sub-Saharan Africa from malaria with one million bednets by 2016.
