Nothing But Nets is a global, grassroots campaign of the United Nations Foundation founded in 2006, to raise awareness and funding to fight malaria, a leading cause of death among children in Africa. By donating $10 for a mosquito net, anyone can help prevent the millions of deaths that malaria causes.
In five years, the Nothing But Nets campaign has engaged hundreds of thousands of individuals to help achieve the UN goal of ending malaria deaths by 2015.
Nothing But Nets works with UN partners like UNICEF, the UN Refugee Agency, and the World Health Organization to purchase nets, transport them to Africa, and distribute them to families. Net distributions are typically part of a wider public health effort within a country coordinated by the Ministry of Health, the UN and other local and international organizations.
We can all have a part in fighting the world’s most pressing problems!
