Our one billionth PermaNet bed net rolled off the production line this month. This is an opportunity to reflect on and celebrate the steps we have taken together thus far to eliminate malaria. We will not rest until malaria is eliminated.
We want to use this moment to convene allies and new partners to get the fight against malaria back on track. Download the logos and help share the message.
We have developed a set of comprehensive messages to support your social media messaging.
We believe there is an opportunity to create a sustained conversation, stop the clock and get the fight against malaria back on track. We encourage partners to use these messages to present a unified voice across the community.
⏰ The time to act is now. Funding has stagnated, mosquitoes have become increasingly resistant to insecticides, and the impact of climate change could accelerate the resurgence of malaria in many parts of the world. This is a poignant reminder of the need for closer working relationships across the ecosystem and a renewed commitment to our shared mission.
We invite our partners to incorporate the following hashtags into your social media posts to actively participate in the ongoing dialogue.
#BillionStepsTogether #StopTheClock #EndMalaria
We also encourage you to tag Vestergaard in your social media posts.
