Helping Children Reach Their Fifth Birthday

Dear friends,

Malaria affects approximately half of the world’s population but the majority of deaths are concentrated among children under five in sub-Saharan Africa.

In supporting PSI’s “Buy a Net; Save a Life” project, you have helped to increase access to effective malaria prevention and treatment interventions through the delivery of long-lasting insecticide treated nets (LLINs).

PSI uses multiple channels to deliver these interventions, including the public and private sectors and community case management strategies. PSI works in 32 malaria endemic countries, including 24 in Sub Saharan Africa.

To date, PSI has delivered more than 150 million insecticide treated mosquito nets and more than 35 million malaria treatments. In 2011 alone, PSI delivered 43 million nets, representing roughly half of all nets delivered in Africa last year.

With the help of your contributions through GlobalGiving since April 1, 2012, PSI has distributed 3,116,551 bed nets in 19 countries, adding 1,052,394 years of healthy life. You have helped mothers to protect their families, and have helped children around the world reach their fifth birthday.

Thank you for your continued support,

PSI
