World Malaria Day is almost here. Are you wearing your UAM bracelet?

What’s the most powerful tool to protect a child from malaria?

There are many: long-lasting insecticide-treated bednets, rapid diagnostic tests, artemisinin-based combination therapies, and antenatal care for pregnant women. But for World Malaria Day tomorrow (April 25), there’s a tool that’s both powerful and simple, the United Against Malaria bracelet–and it’s one of the easiest ways to raise funds for malaria control efforts in Africa.

To purchase a UAM bracelet, visit www.UnitedAgainstMalaria.org or Relate: http://relate.org.za/projects/united-against-malaria/
