About Malaria No More UK
Malaria has been described as the oldest killer disease in history; even now, despite recent progress, it claims the life of a child every two minutes. Malaria No More UK is part of a global movement that is determined to make this the generation that beats this killer. To realise this vision, we need to mobilise governments, influencers, businesses and the public, inspiring them to commit funds, energy and resources to ending deaths from malaria and wiping out the disease for good.
We’re delivering two exciting campaigns, one that is global and another UK-focused. Each have lots of celebrity and media endorsement and we need your help delivering our award-winning social and digital communications. Your time and hard work will help us accelerate the end of the world’s oldest and deadliest disease.

- The opportunity to play a role in the global movement to help end malaria – creating campaigns that are used all over the world by organisations like the WHO and broadcasters like MTV.
