About this page
GiveWell aims to find the best giving opportunities we can and recommend them to donors. We tend to put a lot of investigation into the organizations we find most promising, and de-prioritize others based on limited information. When we decide not to prioritize an organization, we try to create a brief writeup of our thoughts on that charity because we want to be as transparent as possible about our reasoning.
The following write-up should be viewed in this context: it explains why we determined that (for the time being), we won't be prioritizing the organization in question as a potential top charity. This write-up should not be taken as a "negative rating" of the charity. Rather, it is our attempt to be as clear as possible about the process by which we came to our top recommendations.

What do they do?
Malaria No More engages in a large variety of activities, including providing nets for LLIN distributions,1 initiatives to raise the level of attention given to the fight against malaria,2 and initiatives to increase awareness of malaria risks and usage of control measures among local populations.3
We contacted Malaria No More because of its focus on malaria control, which we consider to be a promising area. After an initial conversation with Malaria No More, we decided not to investigate Malaria No More further. We are not cleared to share notes from our conversation.

"With the support of Malaria No More, the Clinton Foundation and UNICEF, Botswana conducted a mass long lasting insecticide treated net distribution pilot campaign in its own Okavango district. This pilot aimed to prove the effectiveness and efficacy of a new proposed model for mosquito net distribution using existing extensive infrastructure for indoor residual spraying. Malaria No More provided funding for all 32,000 nets required to conduct this pilot. The Botswana Government, Clinton Foundation and UNICEF worked together to distribute the nets."
