Help defeat mosquito-borne disease.

Every year, 725,000 people suffer from mosquito-borne diseases such as malaria, dengue, chikungunya, West Nile Virus and yellow fever. Malaria alone affects almost 200 million people and kills nearly 600,000 every year. Thanks to concerted global action and investment, malaria cases have fallen by 37% since 2000 and death rates by 58% - more than 6.2 million lives, primarily young children, have been saved. But although dramatic progress is being made, mosquito-borne disease remains a global threat.

Join BASF in the fight against disease. Read our success stories to see how controlling the mosquitoes that spread these illnesses is a critical investment in the future; resulting in fewer sick people, better school attendance, stronger economies and a healthier, brighter future for entire communities.
