1 Billion mosquito nets have been distributed in Africa since 2000 - and the results have been incredible.
Nearly 1 million people died annually from malaria, and fewer than 5 million mosquito nets were distributed each year. Having a bed net was rare in Africa.
With a specific call to increase net coverage, the MDGs galvanzied the fight to end malaria.
The largest funder of nets, the Global Fund has financed the distribution of 270 million mosquito nets since 2004.
PMI has procured over 123 milion nets, and made America the largest bi-lateral funder of the malaria fight.
Bringing together global leaders, the event expanded PMI to 8 new countries, and launched Malaria No More.
800% increase over 2004 levels, with 47 million nets being distributed to Africa.
Over three seasons, America's most popular TV show American Idol educated tens of millions of Americans and raised millions of nets for Africa
Ban Ki-moon calls for universal net coverage for at-risk populations by 2010, and names Ray Chambers the UN Special Envoy for Malaria.
The World Malaria Report indicates a major milestone: Malaria deaths are cut in half among African children; for the first time, fewer than 500,000 kids die from malaria.
2014 is the biggest year to date, with 189 million nets distributed in Africa, including a record 42 million nets in Nigeria.
One billion nets have driven unprecented progress against history's deadliest disease (scroll down for more).
A child still dies from malaria almost every minute, and nets need to be replaced every 3-5 years. We must sustain coverage and funding to defeat this disease.
Combined with other malaria interventions, nets have contributed to an astonishing reduction in malaria transmission worldwide.
Thanks to contributions from nets and other interventions, millions of people aren't losing their lives to mosquito bites.
In just 15 years, we've cut the malaria death rate for African children by more than HALF.
Hundreds of millions of parents can now sleep soundly knowing their children are safe each and every night.
Together we are creating a world where no child dies of a mosquito bite.
We have made incredible progress, but nets need to be replaced every 3-5 years. Unless we increase our efforts, malaria will come roaring back and undo all the progress we've made. Help us put malaria eradication at the top of the world's agenda by spreading the word!
