An interfaith coalition of faith-based organizations has announced it will mobilize one million faith leaders over the next five years to help improve the health of women and children in countries with high child mortality rates.
On April 25, World Malaria Day, Episcopal Relief & Development's NetsforLife® malaria prevention program is joining with its partners to celebrate the gains made so far in stopping this deadly disease, and call for renewed support from local and international stakeholders to “Invest in the Future. Defeat Malaria.”
To mark World Malaria Day, April 25th, 2009, NetsforLife®, a program partnership of Episcopal Relief & Development, announces its second phase - an initiative to mobilize over 30,000 volunteers and distribute up to 7 million mosquito nets to 17 countries in sub-Saharan Africa over the next five years.
NetsforLife® will reaffirm this pledge at the One World Against Malaria Summit hosted by the U.N. Secretary General's Special Envoy for Malaria and the Center for Interfaith Action on Global Poverty in Washington, D.C. this week.
