2020 Goalkeepers Report
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has published its 2020 Goalkeepers Report which focuses on the devastating impact of COVID-19 in Sub-Saharan Africa. According to Bill Gates, the report has two goals. “First we analyze the damage the pandemic has done and is still doing—to health, to economies, and to virtually everything else. Second, we argue for a collaborative response.”
As part of the Goalkeepers report is a five-minute video, in which Bill expands on the impact of COVID-19 on malaria, the disease we at Malaria Partners International are committed to eliminate. The five minutes you spend watching this video will illustrate malaria’s widespread devastation on young children, pregnant women, and on fragile developing economies.
Despite the sobering look at malaria’s potentially rising toll, Malaria Partners International is as committed as ever to a world in which no child, no pregnant woman, no person will die of this preventable and treatable disease.
