How Can I Get Involved?
Nothing But Nets supporters send nets and save lives every day. The U.S. Government plays a critical leadership role in preventing malaria. We need to let our policymakers know that we support this work and encourage them to robustly fund and invest in life-saving programs like the President's Malaria Initiative (PMI), the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Global Fund) and UN agencies. By participating in advocacy, you are joining an energized network of individuals around the United States who are working to ensure that our leaders protect children, pregnant women, refugees and families from 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 PMI, the Global Fund and the UN.
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.
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 United Nations
UN agencies, in partnership with PMI and the Global Fund, work to make sure refugees, children, and other vulnerable populations are protected from malaria, often in complex humanitarian emergencies.
