RAM-G offers a one-time $25,000 grant to coincide with world malaria day
RAM-Global offers a one-time USD $25,000 grant to coincide with World Malaria Day on 25 April. This World Malaria Day Grant celebrates RAM-Global Chair Drake Zimmerman’s award of Rotary International’s Service Above Self Award for his nearly 30 years of work on Malaria.
RAM-Global – Who are we? The Official Rotary Action Group on Malaria. We bring awareness of malaria to Rotarians in our global campaign to end malaria.
Our ultimate goal is to eradicate malaria.
This RAM-Global Grant raises awareness of and provides opportunity for Rotarians/Rotaractors to apply existing and new tools to End Malaria. Many countries have demonstrated that Malaria can be eliminated in our lifetime. Rotarians in Indo-Pacific Region are working to scale up tools.
RAM-Global work in partnership with other Rotarians’ efforts, RAM-Australia and Malaria Partners International. We work with local and international Groups to End Malaria in Africa, Asia and Latin America.
RAM-Global innovates by adapting methods to accelerate malaria elimination.
RAM-Global takes proven innovations to scale.
Rotary Grant was the first to add nets to Vaccine Campaigns. Methods now scaled up Africa-wide.
Rotary Grants Train and Equip Community Health Workers in ways that reduce Malaria dramatically in Zambia, Uganda. In Asia Pacific, we are scaling up the use of Community Health Workers in West Timor to accelerate malaria elimination there. ea
RAM-Australia support helped prove the protocols to take Malaria to Zero- and Keep it at Zero!
