5 Signs We're Making Progress in the Fight to Defeat Malaria

Nothing But Nets supporters and our UN partners made an incredible life-saving impact in 2015, both by providing bed nets and successfully advocating for increased U.S. government funding for malaria prevention.

And there's more progress to me made! Last night in his State of the Union address, President Obama affirmed the fact that we have the capacity to end malaria in our generation, and promised to continue advocating for funding in order to accomplish that goal.

There is a lot to be proud of, and this is a great reminder that we have to double down on our commitment and ensure progress is not lost in 2016 and beyond. Let's keep the momentum going!
