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 two minutes from malaria - a preventable disease. How can we let this happen?

You can give a vulnerable child access to rapid malaria testing for just $5. Please donate today.

Our researchers are working hard to find better ways to treat and diagnose malaria, but they need your support to keep going.

In Papua New Guinea where malaria is a major killer, we are testing vulnerable babies with a small device the size of a finger. It delivers a result in just 20 minutes and gives them the best chance to be treated early and survive malaria. This is all part of our groundbreaking Healthy Mothers, Healthy Babies research program.

We urgently need new supplies of this rapid malaria test to save precious lives. Please help with a gift today.
