Spread the Net against malaria
Each year, more than 600,000 lives are lost to malaria, the majority of which are pregnant women and children under 5. 90% of these malaria-related deaths occur in Africa.
Since 2007, Spread the Net has protected the lives of more than 7.2 million people including children and pregnant women and delivering over 2.5 million malaria-preventing bed nets to families in Africa.

Bed nets: The solution
Insecticide-treated bed nets are one of the most effective and inexpensive ways to prevent the transmission of malaria.
- Since 2000, an estimated 4.2 million lives have been saved as a result of malaria interventions, which includes the distribution of bed nets.
- One bed net can protect 2 people for up to 3 years.
- Thousands of lives could be saved every year if all children under the age of 5 in Africa slept under a bed net.
Malaria was eradicated in Canada over 50 years ago.
