Recent innovations in the malaria fight are saving thousands of lives every single day. Meet some of those whose lives have been impacted by modern day developments.

Douglas tackles malaria on a
mobile phone

As a community health volunteer, Douglas has been donating his free time to fighting malaria and helping to protect his 300 neighbors from the disease. When a neighbor feels sick, they can visit Douglas and get tested –and, if needed - treated, for malaria. Douglas records cases via an app on his mobile device that feeds data to the central database where the country is monitoring transmission.

BUT WE AREN’T
STOPPING NOW
We're working with our partners to develop the next-generation tools and strategies that will move us from saving individual lives to full-scale elimination.
  • TESTING

    New RDTs will be able to detect the parasite in seemingly HEALTHY people who are acting as active hosts of the disease.

  • TREATMENT

    Next-generation pills can eliminate the parasite with a single dose, are immune from recent drug resistance and will protect from reinfection.

  • BLOCKING TRANSMISSION

    Vaccines are currently in development to not only protect humans, but to block transmission from humans to mosquitoes - eliminating the vector that passes the disease from person to person.

  • MOBILE phones

    Mobile phones are already being used to battle fake drugs, manage stock supplies at clinics and provide instant response to reported outbreaks.
