Help stop young children dying of malaria.


“The day my young niece died was an incredibly sad day for our family. Rachael was just five years old and the second child my sister has lost. I never stop worrying about my own children, not with something like malaria.

“She and her family had stayed with me for the Christmas holidays. In early February, she complained of fever and headaches and was prescribed antimalarial drugs. But Rachael didn’t get better. It’s an awful thing for a family to lose a young child. It’s devastating.” - Geraldine, Rachael’s aunt.

A child like Rachael dies every 45 seconds from malaria - a preventable disease. How can we let this happen?

We urgently need your help to develop a life-saving malaria vaccine.

At Burnet, Professor James Beeson and his malaria research team are working hard to create an effective vaccine that would prevent needless deaths, like Rachael’s. They recently discovered a malaria-blocking immune response that paves the way for an effecive vaccine.

But they urgently need your help. Your support could help turn their discovery into a life-saving vaccine.

Professor James Beeson and his team are working towards a new vaccine.

Many Australians travel each year into malaria-endemic countries like PNG but they are lucky. They can take antimalarial tablets to stay well.

But, millions of vulnerable mums and children aren’t so lucky. They are counting on us creating a life-saving vaccine so their children will survive.

Will you help? Please donate to this special Appeal today.

I urgently need to raise $100,000 so Professor James Beeson and his team can turn their discoveries into a vaccine for malaria. Please help us make this happen. Donate today.
