Life-Saving Nets in Zimbabwe

Population at risk for malaria:  6,510,000

Malaria cases:  276,963*

Malaria deaths:  351*

NETS DISTRIBUTED:  69,125

Between 2007 and 2012, the UN Foundation's Nothing But Nets campaign has worked with the campaign's founding partner, The United Methodist Church, to send and distribute 69,125 life-saving bed nets in Zimbabwe.

In 2007, Nothing But Nets and The United Methodist Church visited local hospitals, clinics, and orphanages in Zimbabwe to better understand the impact of malaria and to distribute bed nets to those in need. Nothing But Nets joined the Baltimore-Washington Conference of The United Methodist Church on their bi-yearly visit to their partner church, the Zimbabwe Episcopal Area of The United Methodist Church, in Mutare. Also, during this trip, Nothing But Nets worked with local community health workers to support the training of over 200 local pastors to help them spread the message to their home congregations and communities that malaria kills and nets save lives.
