OUR ULTIMATE GOAL IS TO END MALARIA

We will explain HOW

RAM-Global, (Rotarians Against Malaria), Rotary Action Group, has chosen to take on the huge efforts of malaria elimination work world- wide. RAM-Global and our partner projects have proven that we can take down malaria in places where our assistance is desperately needed.

Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation awarded the first ever Program of Scale to strengthen efforts to fight malaria in Zambia. We have partners around the world and have worked with RAM-Australia whose efforts have proven that malaria can be eliminated.

Our global grants continue to provide the tools and techniques Rotarians and Community Health Promoters (CHP) utilize in the battle against this deadly disease.

We encourage you to explore our website, listen to our videos, share in our successes, and allow your interests in malaria to expand and work with us to knock out this terrible disease.

WHY END MALARIA?

BECAUSE WE CAN WIN THIS FIGHT.

Malaria is one of oldest and deadliest diseases, devastating families, communities, and countries. Yet we have the tools to end malaria in a generation. This is why we are putting all our energy into  eradicating malaria from the world because we now know how to. Rotarians make a KEY difference.

  • In 2022, malaria claimed 608,000 lives and caused 249 million cases in 85 malaria endemic countries. 94% of the cases were in Sub-Saharan Africa.
  • Malaria accounts for half of missed days in African schools. Malaria may occur several times in children during the year in endemic countries. They cannot go to school and learn effectively, ultimately impacting their ability to earn a living.
  • Keeping children healthy enables parents to go to work and reduce the need to spend their wages on malaria treatments and health care.

Malaria keeps families and communities from prospering. By sustaining investments in ending malaria and improving health, we can unlock economic growth and human potential.

  • Malaria-free countries have 5x greater economic growth than countries with malaria.
  • A 10% decrease in malaria has been associated with a .3% rise in GDP.
  • Every $1 invested in malaria control in Africa returns $40 in economic growth, contributing to Africa’s prosperity and its prospects as a trading partner.

Malaria research is developing next generation tools and strategies to expand the fight against malaria and other mosquito-borne diseases.

  • Building digitalization infrastructure will vastly improve the delivery of healthcare locally.

  • Rapid diagnostics and better treatments address the growing threat of resistance to anti-malarial drugs and insecticides.

  • Community Healthcare Promoters trained to diagnose and treat malaria, also aid in fighting other diseases.
