20 November 2020
Our name has changed but our mission remains steadfast: To Ignite a Rotary Campaign for the Global Eradication of Malaria.
The mission and vision of Malaria Partners International are closely aligned with two of Rotary International’s seven areas of focus: Disease Prevention & Treatment and Maternal & Child Health. Malaria Partners International was founded by members of Rotary. The board is composed of Rotary Members from across the United States, and it works with Rotary Clubs around the world to reduce the burden of malaria.
Jenny Andrews, executive director of Malaria Partners International gives us a look at what we are doing to prevent malaria and address its effects on maternal and child health.

With many PARTNERS
On an INTERNATIONAL scale
As the new name suggests, Malaria Partners International is forging new global partnerships and deepening its bonds with current partners, while staying close to its Rotary roots.

“Rotary is at the very heart of our work” said Executive Director, Jenny Andrews. “Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to schedule one of our board members to present to your Rotary club. We have seen the success that Rotarians have had in the global fight to eradicate polio, and we are using that same model in the battle against malaria.”
