## How do charities address malaria?

Many charities run programs to distribute insecticide-treated bednets to protect against mosquitoes that transmit malaria. We have seen few charities focusing on other anti-malaria programs such as medicines to treat malaria or spraying pesticide to kill mosquitoes.

## Where should you donate to fight malaria?

For donors interested in using their donation to fight malaria, we recommend:

• Against Malaria Foundation, which distributes insecticide-treated nets. AMF is extremely transparent, publishing the status of each distribution on its website. For more, see our full review of the AMF.
