Nothing But Nets supporters send nets and save lives every day. The U.S. Government plays a critical leadership role in preventing malaria.

The Jewish People recognize the importance of helping those in need. Nothing But Nets builds on this support in the fight against malaria. At key moments during the year, Nothing But Nets may call on you to ask the US Government to continue its vital support for malaria prevention by backing funding of the President's Malaria Initiative or the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.

President's Malaria Initiative
Former President George W. Bush started the President's Malaria Initiative in 2005 to protect women and children in Africa from malaria. The initiative supports proven and cost-effective prevention and treatment interventions, including insecticide-treated bed nets. In the last five years, with the support of national and international partners -- including UNICEF, the Global Fund, and faith-based organizations similar to the Union for Reform Judaism -- the President's Malaria Initiative has distributed more than 40 million insecticide-treated bed nets in sub-Saharan Africa.

The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria
The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria raises money from world governments and international organizations to stop the spread of AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria and distributes life-saving funds where they are most needed. The fund provides 60 percent of the world's funding to end malaria death and since its creation in 2002, it has distributed more than 310 million insecticide-treated nets to protect families from malaria.
