Launched in 2014, the Nothing But Nets Champions Council has grown to over 600 activists from around the world who are dedicated to fighting malaria and growing this global grassroots movement to eradicate the disease within their lifetimes. Our Champions Council brings together malaria advocates from a wide range of backgrounds, professions, and life experiences; but what connects them all is a shared passion for ensuring that the fight against malaria remains a priority both in their communities and on Capitol Hill.
Utilizing tools and resources provided by Nothing But Nets, our Champions take action in a variety of ways: they host community events, hold meetings with their members of Congress, and raise funds and awareness through social media.
Our Champions’ marquee moment each year is the Nothing But Nets Leadership Summit, held each Spring in Washington DC. The Leadership Summit engages our Champions deeper in the fight against malaria and includes workshops that help them become better advocates and community organizers.
On the Summit’s final day, our Champions meet with their members of Congress on Capitol Hill to emphasize the impact and critical importance of US-supported malaria programs through the Global Fund to Fight Tuberculosis, HIV and Malaria and the President’s Malaria Initiative. Thanks to the sustained advocacy of our Champions, Nothing But Nets has helped sustain strong funding for US-supported malaria programs that provide critical malaria interventions for millions of people each year.
Our champions make us who we are – the world’s largest grassroots campaign fighting to end malaria.
