Dear Partners,
Imagine a hopeful young mother, her pregnancy overshadowed by the threat of malaria. Each year, 10,000 mothers die because of malaria, their immune systems weakened through pregnancy, increasing the risk of infection and complications.

The statistics are staggering - in 2022, 12.7 million women in the WHO African Region faced malaria during pregnancy, a third of all expectant mothers. Behind these statistics are real human beings.


Imagine not having access to health care services, to clinics, to treatments, to information which could save lives? Health is a human right. This means access to the full range of quality health services when people need them, when and where they need them and without the strain of financial hardship. This should be available to all of us.


Yet, amidst these challenges, we can fight. Working together offers hope.


Together, mothers and children can have a voice in this fight and we can address healthcare disparities.
As World Malaria Day approaches, lets not just raise awareness but let’s ignite change. Lets unite to ensure no mother, child or family member faces malaria alone, creating a future where every life is valued and protected.
