Invest in the future. Defeat disease.

Every year, millions of people are infected and thousands die from malaria and other tropical diseases. But the international public health community is turning the tide. Thanks to concerted global action and investment, death rates from malaria among young children have been halved and Guinea worm disease has been virtually eradicated from the globe. But although dramatic progress is being made, tropical diseases remain a threat to more than half the world’s population.

Join BASF in the fight for public health. Read our success stories to see how controlling the mosquitoes that spread malaria and other disease-transmitting insects is a critical investment in the future; resulting in fewer sick people, stronger economies and a healthier, brighter future for entire communities.
