Malaria: Malaria No More
Malaria No More would raise $60 million â€œfor mosquito net distribution, training, technical assistance, and awareness. With the combined efforts, the primary goal is to stop people dying from this disease. Malaria is a mosquito-borne disease that is widespread in the subtropical regions. UNICEF proposes to reduce maternal and neonatal tetanus through the distribution of tetanus vaccine. A low cost vaccine could save the life of a mother and her children.
