Lets End Malaria

Let’s End Malaria Together

Eco Pest is raising money to send protective mosquito nets and other malaria interventions through the Nothing But Nets campaign – the world’s largest grassroots campaign to end malaria – one of the oldest and deadliest diseases that is a leading cause of death among children in the world. Malaria is transmitted at night by a mosquito bite, but a simple net hung over a child’s bed can provide protection from this deadly, yet preventable disease.

This year, Eco Pest will be donating $5 for every mosquito control treatment!

Just $5 covers the cost to purchase, ship, and educate a parent on how to properly use a bed net.

We Can Be the Generation to Defeat Malaria

Nothing But Nets is a global grassroots campaign to raise awareness, funds, and voices to fight malaria. In 2006, sports columnist Rick Reilly wrote a column in Sports Illustrated challenging each of his readers to donate at least $10 to send insecticide-treated bed nets to protect families from malaria-carrying mosquitoes. Since then, with the help of our partners and supporters, we have raised over $70 million to help deliver 13 million bed nets to families in need, along with other crucial malaria interventions like diagnostics, treatment, and training of healthcare workers.

Who is Nothing But Nets?

Over the years, we’ve engaged hundreds of thousands of individuals to help achieve the United Nations and the global health community’s goal of ending malaria in this generation. We work with students, churches, local businesses, and a diverse group of partners, including the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Basketball Association’s NBA Cares, Junior Chamber International, and Sumitomo Chemical Corporation, among others, to rally the health, business, and sports communities to help us fight malaria.

What Nothing But Nets Does

We raise funds to send lifesaving bed nets and other malaria preventions and treatment to families in need. Our supporters advocate to their members of Congress in support of UN agencies, the President’s Malaria Initiative, and The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to ensure critical funding to defeat malaria worldwide. And we work to inspire new people and partners to join the fight.

Who Nothing But Nets Helps

Every two minutes, somewhere in the world, a child dies from malaria. We work with UN partners like UNICEF and UNHCR to protect refugees and families who are most vulnerable to malaria.

Some have fled conflict, others have been displaced by natural disasters or political unrest and have left everything behind. After all they have endured, these families shouldn’t have to fear a deadly mosquito bite. We are committed to protecting them so they can be healthy and thrive.

Why Nets?

Long-lasting, insecticidal bed nets (LLINs) are a simple, cost-effective solution to protect families from malaria while they sleep. They create a physical barrier against malaria-carrying mosquitoes, and the insecticide woven into the nets kills the mosquitoes before they can transmit the disease from one person to the next.

Today, approximately 53% of the population in sub-Saharan Africa is protected by bed nets, compared to just 2% in 2000. We work with our UN partners and local governments to identify areas of greatest need and purchase the nets to distribute to families. These partners and local governments have expertise in accessing remote, hard-to-reach areas.

Amisa is an 11-year old in sub-Saharan Africa. She describes the impact a simple net can have on her family and community.

We will continue to protect refugees in this region, where malaria elimination is within reach.

But we need your help, too.

It only takes $10 to send two bed nets to protect families in need.
