Y's Men Roll Back Malaria Y's Men Roll Back Malaria Presentation Transcript

  • ROLLBACK MALARIA’s vision:
    a world free from
    the burden of malaria.
  • Malaria is a parasitic disease
    transmitted by the bite of infected
    mosquitoes. Once the first symptoms
    appear, malaria can kill very rapidly
    and often does.
  • 300-500 million cases
    of malaria cause up to
    3 MILLION
    DEATHS
    EVERY YEAR,
    most of them children
    under the age of 5.
  • Malaria is a
    GLOBAL
    EMERGENCY
  • Malaria is a
    GLOBAL
    EMERGENCY,
    perpetuating a vicious
    cycle of poverty in the
    developing world.
  • By 2015, the malaria-specific United Nations
    Millennium Development Goal (MDG 6) is achieved:
  • By 2015, the malaria-specific United Nations
    Millennium Development Goal (MDG 6) is achieved:
    • Malaria is no longer a major cause of mortality.
  • By 2015, the malaria-specific United Nations
    Millennium Development Goal (MDG 6) is achieved:
    • Malaria is no longer a major cause of mortality.
    • Malaria is no longer a barrier to social and economic development and growth anywhere in the world.
  • ROLLBACK MALARIA’s
    strategy includes
    distribution of
    insecticide-treated
    mosquito nets (ITNs)
    to prevent mosquitoes
    from infecting people
    with malaria.
  • ITNs can reduce
    malaria mortality
    by more than
    50%
  • ITNs can save up to
    1.5 million
    lives
  • ROLLBACK MALARIA
    gains strength through its
    effective partnerships with
    the International
    Federation of
    the Red Cross and
    the United Nations.

    joins a global
    response to
    malaria.

    coordinated efforts.

    YMI and
    the IFRC
    distributed
    25,000 nets
    in Sierra Leone.

    the IFRC will
    continue as
