Magaria pediatric unit and ITFC
Each year, malaria kills nearly half a million people. 70 per cent of all deaths are children under five years of age.

The disease is easy enough to treat, but access to the most effective treatments remains inadequate. 90 per cent of all malaria deaths occur on the African continent. Impregnated mosquito nets are expensive and out of reach for many. The parasite which causes malaria is beginning to show resistance in parts of Asia to the most effective drug we have. And there are no new drugs in the development pipeline, meaning we could be left without effective options in the future.
