Working with the UN
The UN Foundation’s Nothing But Nets works alongside our United Nations partners to determine where life-saving bed nets are most urgently needed, and to deliver the nets to those communities.
Our UN Partners:
The UN Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign collaborates closely with the Roll Back Malaria partnership (RBM). RBM was launched in 1998 by the World Health Organization, UNICEF, the United Nations Development Programme, and the World Bank to help coordinate a global approach to fighting malaria. Nothing But Nets works closely with our partners at RBM to drastically reduce malaria deaths in support of the Millennium Development Goals.

UNICEF works in more than 150 countries and territories to help children survive and thrive, from early childhood through adolescence. The world’s largest provider of vaccines for developing countries, UNICEF supports child health and nutrition, safe water and sanitation, quality basic education for all boys and girls, and the protection of children from violence, exploitation, and AIDS.

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees was established in 1950 by the United Nations General Assembly. The agency leads and coordinates international action to protect the rights and well-being of refugees.
UNHCR strives to ensure that everyone can exercise the right to seek asylum and find safe refuge in another State, with the option to return home voluntarily, integrate locally or to resettle in a third country.
In 2008, the United Nations Foundation’s Nothing But Nets campaign announced at the Clinton Global Initiative a new plan to help eliminate malaria deaths within our generation. Responding to an urgent and immediate need, Nothing But Nets worked with UNHCR to send long-lasting, insecticide-treated bed nets to the more than 630,000 refugees living in 27 temporary camps in East Sudan, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.

WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, providing technical support to countries and monitoring health trends.
Every year, the WHO publishes the World Malaria Report to share data on the impact of malaria prevention/treatment interventions, as well as point out the remaining gaps to fill in order to reach the global goal of ending malaria deaths by 2015. Read the 2010 report.
