Malaria has a devastating effect on pregnant women and their babies. Policymakers must prioritize their health.

Last year, a staggering 11.6 million pregnant women were infected with malaria in sub-Saharan Africa, with devastating consequences for both mothers and babies. Unfortunately, very few pregnant women receive preventive antimalarial treatment. Thank you to all those who signed this letter to help us influence top-level decision-makers to increase their efforts to protect more pregnant women from malaria. The letter and signatures will be delivered to heads of state at the African Union Summit in 2023.

1008 signatures have been received.
