Every 60 seconds, a child dies from malaria. This isn’t an old statistic — this is reality for thousands of children in sub-Saharan Africa today in 2014. The United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign has been working hard since 2006 to change this reality. And we’re making great progress — over the last decade, coordinated global efforts have helped to reduce child mortality rates from malaria by half. We want — and need — to defeat malaria for good. And what is so profound is that hundreds and hundreds of kids here in the U.S. have joined us in this mission.
