Invest in the future. Defeat malaria.

Every year, almost 200 million people are infected with malaria and an estimated 584,000 people die from the disease. But the international public health community is turning the tide. Thanks to concerted global action and investment, more than 4.3 million lives have been saved since 2000 and death rates among young children have been halved. But although dramatic progress is being made, malaria remains a threat to more than half the world’s population.

Join BASF in the fight against the disease. Read our success stories to see how controlling the mosquitoes that spread malaria 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.
