Charity of the Year 2009

Malaria Consortium is the world’s leading charity dedicated to the control of malaria. We work to improve and save the lives of some of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world. Malaria is both preventable and treatable and is the greatest health challenge facing people in most African countries. Reducing the burden of malaria is crucial to improving lives and presenting people with the opportunity of lifting themselves out of poverty. Our work improves not only the health of an individual, but also national health systems which directly results in poverty relief and is a direct aid to economic prosperity.

We provide comprehensive solutions (diagnosis, treatment and prevention) for malaria control programmes and the main beneficiaries of our programmes are children under the age of five and pregnant women.
